Justine Bateman was born February 19, 1966 in Rye, Ny. Her popularity and success concealed a painful secret, yet. In 1996, she disclosed that during her time in the set of Family Ties she was coping with anorexia, bulimia and compulsive overeating. In 1988, Bateman got a starring character in the motion picture Satisfaction, a summer love story movie that—despite featuring Liam Neeson and Julia Roberts—was badly received. In 2000, the performer took a rest from Hollywood and founded her very own clothing company.

TV as we knew it is absolutely dead. There are still shows in production, still ad buys being made, but the numbers these shows get are a small fraction of the ratings these same type of shows used to command. The amount of TV shows produced annually decreases every year. The amount of people employed by TV shows is far less than it used to be. All these decreases are steady from year to year. Traditional TV is not "in a slump," it has been steadily declining. (2010)
I like to go dancing, have a few beers. I like being alone, too. I have days where it's 'God, get me a shot of tequila.'
I'm going to be in another city when my kids are teenagers. I'll be like, 'Give me a call when you're done with all that.'
When I got 'Family Ties', I wasn't even thinking about being an actress. I thought I might become a window dresser.
