Tiffani Thiessen is turning the big 5-0 next January and unlike many in Hollywood claims to never have had any work done and isn’t planning on it either.
“I like my laugh lines,” she told Page Six Style exclusively in a recent interview.
“And I call them laugh lines and happy lines because that’s what they are, you know? And I also cried a lot, too. So they probably were created for that, too. But that’s life.”
She added, “And I earned them.”
The “Saved by the Bell” alum also noted that her children, daughter, Harper, 13, and son, Holt, 8, are a big reason why she’s not had fillers or Botox.
“I want to lead by example,” she explained. “I have a teenage daughter, I don’t want her to see that I’m scared [about] turning 50 and that I need to change my face or anything.”
That’s not to say that Thiessen hasn’t felt any pressure to go under a scalpel.
“Of course I did,” she exclaimed. “And I still do sometimes. I mean I look at [myself] in Zoom and I’m like, ‘Oh boy!’ But that’s part of it, right? Like there’s days [where you] feel better than others and there’s days that I don’t care so much.”

The “90210” star is currently promoting her second cookbook, “Here We Go Again: Recipes and Inspiration to Level Up Your Leftovers,” which is full of ideas and recipes to repurpose leftover food.
Thiessen says she grew up using leftovers because “my parents were on a budget, and my mom was really kind of the one that showed me how to stretch food throughout the week.”
She says there’s two reasons why fans will love the concept of her new book.
“One is budget,” she listed, “which everybody could use right now in this day and age, and two to really hone in on the importance of food wasted, which is what I’m always trying to teach my children and the impact we really do have as humans.”
The “Alexa & Katie” star also noted that, shockingly, “like 40% of food is wasted from farm to table, which is absurd.
She stressed that her cookbooks are for novices.
“I feel like it’s a book where you don’t have to be really good in the kitchen, like just kind of know your way around the kitchen to be able to do any of these recipes.
“But it’s all ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry and your fridge.
“You’re not going to find ingredients you can’t pronounce or can’t find. That was something that was really important to me, too.”
