NY POST – Justine Bateman is getting older, and she doesn’t care what people think.
Bateman, 57, has been a star since she was a teenager, and people watched her grow up on-screen.
But the “Family Ties” star didn’t realize the internet obsession over her aging face until she googled herself.
“I needed to google something to do a little research and remind myself of something that happened when I was famous, so I put in my name, googled my name, Justine Bateman, and then the autocomplete came up which was ‘looks old,’” Bateman told “60 Minutes Australia.”
She continued, “And I was only 42 at the time … and I was like, ‘What?’ And I looked at the pictures that they had as evidence and I couldn’t see what they were talking about.”
Family Ties star Justine Bateman spoke about ignoring Hollywood beauty standards and embracing her wrinkles in a new interview.
Justine Bateman feels sad for women who use Botox and filler to prevent wrinkles and thinks “they’re just not enjoying life.”

While she knows that it’s possible to get work and procedures done to make yourself look younger, Bateman said she enjoys looking her age.
