Emma Roberts carries a skipping rope everywhere she goes.

The 'American Horror Story: Coven' star always exercises during down-time on-set, although she always keeps wipes handy in case she gets a sweaty face.

Emptying the contents of her bag, she said: ''I have a jump rope for exercising on location and Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Wipes for afterward, when I don't have time to wash my face. They're lifesavers.''

The 23-year-old actress - who recently go engaged to her co-star Evan Peters - is also a horror fan off set, and is currently reading a Steven King classic.

She added: ''I use my iPad for looking at scripts, but I refuse to read books on it, so there's usually a novel with me. Right now it's 'The Shining'.''

And a much less scary addition to the actress' handbag is a Spice Girls key ring because it reminds her of her childhood.

Emma explained to Us Weekly magazine: ''Hey, they were my childhood! Baby Spice Emma Bunton was always my favourite because we have the same first name!''
