This is literally just a sentence of a tidbit…but can we make this happen?!

Mariska Hargitay, obsessed with Robert De Niro’s acting ability, “I just want to be in a movie with him.”


Back from vacation and getting the updates in order. Will post pictures soon 🙂 Here’s a little blurb from the NY Daily News for now.

While hosting his annual Bowling Benefit for the Stuttering Association for the Young, Paul Rudd conceded bowling is a dirty business. “I don’t think you need to be germaphobic to acknowledge how disgusting bowling balls are,” he said at the Lucky Strike lanes benefit. “Bowling alleys are like eating at certain restaurants; you don’t want to think about it too much.” Mariska Hargitay also participated, and luckily she had more spares than splits. “I split my pants a lot, but not when I’m bowling,” she said.


Mariska is expected to attend the event in January. Something to look forward to in the new year 🙂

SAY: The Stuttering Association for the Young will present the Third Annual Paul Rudd All-Star Bowling Benefit, hosted by actor Rudd, Jan. 12, 2015, at Lucky Strike Lanes in Manhattan.

The event, which begins at 7 PM, will include a cocktail reception, followed by bowling with stars and kids from SAY’s programs.

Stars currently expected to attend include David Alan Basche, Emily Bergl, Alexis Bledel, Everett Bradley, Bobby Cannavale, Nicki Clyne, Maddie Corman, Lucy DeVito, Frank DiLella, Rachel Dratch, Halley Feiffer, Gina Gershon, Judy Gold, Mariska Hargitay, Jeremy Hays, Peter Hermann, Cady Huffman, Gregory Jbara, Richard Kind, Ricki Lake, Jesse L. Martin, Greg Naughton, James Naughton, Kelli O’Hara, Denis O’Hare, Nykhor Paul, Josh Radnor, Alysia Reiner, Ron Rifkin, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Amy Ryan, Eric Stoltz and Meredith Vieira.

Taylor Swift was interviewed by Time Magazine and she talks about Mariska being her role model.

Is there someone you look to as a model of where you’d like your career to go? Are there women you look up to?

We’re taught to find examples for the way we want our lives to wind up. But I can’t find anyone, really, who’s had the same career trajectory as mine. So when I’m in an optimistic place I hope that my life won’t match anyone else’s life trajectory, either, going forward. I do have female role models in the sense of actresses like Mariska Hargitay. I think she has a beautiful life, and an incredible career, and I think she’s built that for herself. She’s one of the highest paid actresses—actors in general, women or men—on television, and she’s been playing this very strong female character for, what, 15 years now, something like that. And Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa. I really love her business, and how she sticks to who she is, and how people relate to it. In other industries, I have female role models. I just struggle to find a woman in music who hasn’t been completely picked apart by the media, or scrutinized and criticized for aging, or criticized for fighting aging—it just seems to be much more difficult to be a woman in music and to grow older. I just really hope that I will choose to do it as gracefully as possible.

Taylor Swift may have seven Grammys and 15 American Music Awards to her name, but when it comes to TV, she’s just like Us: She often can’t resist a Law & Order: Special Victims Unit marathon. In fact, Swift’s passion for the sex crimes drama starring Mariska Hargitay is so strong that she named her cat after Hargitay’s fan favorite character, Olivia Benson.

To celebrate Swift’s new furry friend — whom the singer introduced via Instagram in June 2014 — Hargitay, 50, gifted the singer with an engraved collar in the shape of a heart.
In September, Hargitay posted an Instagram snap of herself wearing the white collar she had engraved with Swift’s pet’s name, and attached a slew of clever hashtags to the note, including “#MeowliviaBenson” “#PurrfectName” “ThisCollarNeedsACat” and “OliviaBensonPetDectective.”

During an interview promoting the 16th season premiere of SVU in New York City, Hargitay told Us Weekly she thought long and hard about the best way to thank Swift for the gesture. “When she named her cat, I had so much going on. I was out of town, and when things calmed down, I thought it warranted a real something [special]. That’s so sweet and too fabulous,” Hargitay told Us.

Swift, 24, had a chance to bond with Hargitay over the summer at an August concert featuring their mutual friend, Ingrid Michaelson, in New York City. “Taylor is so great — beautiful, girly and lovely,” SVU‘s star said of Swift. The women hit it off so well at the concert that after the show, Swift offered to give Hargitay and her husband, Peter Hermann, a ride home. “She’s a huge fan of the show and was so gracious. When we met, I knew I had to do something great [to repay her],” the actress said.


A short, but cute article from the tennis viewing party.

Mariska Hargitay and family watched the U.S. Open at a giant screening party on Pier One in Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday. The Amex-sponsored event saw the “SVU” actress hitting some balls with tennis star James Blake. When Confidenti@l playfully asked if she’d won in straight sets, Hargitay laughingly replied, “Oh God, yes! Do you need to ask? Actually it was very sweet. He said, ‘Oh, you’re good, I might need to play a little harder.’ ”


Samantha: Debra Messing and Mariska Hargitay are my favorite celeb BFFs. Now that they’re both detectives on NBC, will they get some screen time together?
I don’t want to burst any bubbles, but…maaaaybe. Messing plays Detective Laura Diamond in The Mysteries of Laura, and the first episode makes a reference to Law & Order: SVU being a TV show. However, that doesn’t mean a crossover can’t happen. “In the world of TV, anything is possible,” Messing explains. While the two shows are “very different” in terms of tone, Messing would be down to cross paths with Hargitay’s Olivia Benson. “She’s my best friend, I’ve been on her show before. I’m game for anything if it’s done with finesse.”


Mariska Hargitay had another man stand in for hubby Peter Hermann during a photo op at the Joyful Heart Foundation’s gala at Cipriani 42nd Street Thursday.

Hargitay couldn’t find Hermann for a pic with Ali Wentworth, Debra Messing and her “Law & Order: SVU” co-stars Kelli Giddish, Danny Pino, Ice-T and his wife, Coco.

So she “grabbed the tallest man with dark hair and glasses” to complete the shot.

She jokingly ­introduced the astonished stranger to photographers as “Peter.”


Mariska is an honoree but not attending because it’s in LA and the same night as the JHF Gala.

The Unusual Suspects Theatre Company (US), an award-winning non-profit that provides transformational theatre-arts programs and mentorship to underserved Los Angeles County youth and families, has announced that Melissa Peterman (ABC’s “Baby Daddy”) is hosting its 6th Annual Gala, “Change.

In the criminal justice system, sexually-based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories.

Thanks to Pace NYC’s location, you’ve probably walked onto the set a few times without even knowing it. But on Sunday, June 1, James Lipton and Inside the Actors Studio bring Law and Order: SVU‘s Mariska Hargitay right to the Schimmel Theatre as the next seminar guest.

Mariska Hargitay is a critically acclaimed actress best known for her role as Detective Olivia Benson on the NBC drama Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. This role, which she has played for the last 15 years, has earned her an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and multiple nominations (eight Emmy nominations, six SAG nominations, two Golden Globe nominations).

She’s had a rough season on SVU, but will she be able to handle Lipton’s line of questioning? You’ll find out on June 1. The taping will begin at 12:30 p.m.
