Hollywood star Carrie Preston had her career beginnings in the 1980s, but it was in the ’90s that she became active. During this period, she appeared in the films My Best Friend’s Wedding, Guinevere, and Mercury Rising. In the 2000s, she had her first notable role on the small screen as B.D. Benson in the show Emeril.
She later became best known for her role as Arlene Fowler in True Blood. At the same time, she also acted in the movies Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Doubt, Duplicity, and A Bag of Hammers. She also had notable roles as Elsbeth Tascioni in The Good Wife, Grace Hendricks in Person of Interest, and Judy Lang in The Following. As of 2017, she plays Polly in the new series Claws.

The 50-year-old actress stays in shape by taking care of herself. Not only does she exercise regularly, she also makes sure that she eats the right food to properly nourish her body. She also believes in the importance of moderation and portion control when it comes to her food intake. When asked about her secret, she said it’s just a matter of “eating balanced meals.” In an interview, she talked about her diet habits. She said:
“I try to start off with a protein breakfast, which gets me going in the morning and sustains me until a light lunch. Then I try to eat a balanced dinner.” When it comes to dealing with the pressure of having a certain body image in Hollywood, she said: “I take the time to exercise and eat well so that I can feel good and comfortable in my own skin. Then I don’t feel the need to compare myself with other women, whether in the media or in my own life.”
