Being Emmy Rossum is exhausting. With early morning call times for Shameless, a slew of charity work, and a wedding to plan (she became engaged to Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail this fall), it's no surprise that she'll opt for a quick snooze whenever possible—and have a member of her crew document it via Instagram. "I'm an Olympic napper," she recently told InStyle. "I can sleep in a car, I've slept in a subway, I can sleep in a taxiobviously not behind the wheel."

And it's not like the actress doesn't get a solid night's sleep, either. "I sleep nine hours and then I'll nap," she adds. Her preferred method, she says, is to nap at 10:00 a.m. for 10 minutes and again at 2:00 p.m. for 10 minutes. "You can't nap after 4:00 p.m. because then you'll end up feeling groggy. The key is knowing how to shut your brain off—and having a piece of chocolate when you wake up." Excuse us while we quickly doze off at our desks...
