Yellowstone's Nichole Galicia Shares Swimsuit Photo of "Brad Pitt"

She loves playing strong women.

Yellowstone star Nichole Galicia noticed the male depicted in Renoir's Dance at Le moulin de la Galette painting looks just like Brad Pitt, and humorously posted about it on Instagram. Galicia, who plays Charlotte Riley on the hit Paramount show, shared a picture of herself posing in front of a boat on the water, wearing a white bathing suit and sunglasses. Another shot was of the Renoir painting. "I'm pretty sure that's #bradpitt," she jokingly captioned the post. Here's what Galicia's advice is for up and comers.


Drugstore Brands

Galicia prefers simple drugstore brands when it comes to her beauty routine, opting for Neutrogena and Oil of Olay. "All is forgiven if you put on an amazing lash, fabulous hair and an attitude, and it's all ok," she says. "Attitude is 90 percent, and a great lash is five."


Strong Characters

Galicia loves playing strong characters. "I'm very attracted to strong, deadly female characters; the kind of girls that you'd think twice about before crossing," she says. "So basically any female Tarantino character would be amazing. The women that writer/director Pedro Almodovar writes remind me of my mom and my aunts, so one day I will convince him to cast me in a film. I'm so enticed by smart, sexy, scheming women that wield the type of power that doesn't require a weapon because she is the weapon."


Growth In Her Career

Galicia started her career as a model. "I love modeling," she says. "It involves beautiful clothes, amazing locations and gorgeous photographs so what's not to like? However, I was always meant to be an actor, so I have zero regrets.  My experience as a model has aided me in navigating the business side of acting, but I also use a lot of the techniques I learned as a model in my acting, like movement, subtly, and improv."


Advice For Young Actors


Galicia has good advice for people trying to make it in the entertainment industry. "Keep your mouth shut," she says. "Always show up with a chaperone. What other people think about you is not your business. Be on time, which means be early. Save your money. Every battle is won or lost before it is fought. Take Fountain."


Django Unchained

Galicia's role in Django Unchained changed her life. "Playing Sheba in Django Unchained was a dream come true," she says. "I was surrounded by Oscar winners in every direction from Quentin Tarantino, Bob Richardson, Jamie Foxx, who was so welcoming and treated me like family from day one, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christolph Waltz. It was amazing. And it was exactly as I imagined it would be. I was in a creative vortex. Tarantino gave me an amazing experience."
