She also had notable performances in the movies August: Osage County, Black Mass, and I, Tonya.
Julianne Nicholson maintains her healthy body by sticking to a clean diet plan. In an interview, she revealed how a medical condition prompted her to change her diet. “I don’t use herbs myself very often or even at all regularly, but I had a sickness that I couldn’t get rid of for a long time,” said the actress. “And I went to a naturopathic physician in Connecticut and changed my diet — no meat, no dairy. It was very hard, but it worked.”
