Mariska Hargitay Has A Bum Lung

One of Snarkista’s fave actresses had to miss the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday because she has a collapsed lung! Law and Order SVU’s Mariska Hargitay suffered the collapse, a pneumothorax, while she and her family were on vacation. Mariska was up for “Best Actress In A Television Drama” at the Globes. Poor Mariska, that is a VERY painful and scary condition. Good news for fans, though, her rep. says that “She will appear in all episodes for the rest of the season of Law & Order: SVU.” Yay!

Mariska plays Detective Olivia Benson of the Special Victims Unit. She has won a Golden Globe and an Emmy for her portrayal. She is the daughter of 50’s blonde bombshell actress Jayne Mansfield and Mr. Universe Mickey Hargitay. Mansfield died at age 34 as a result of a 1967 car crash. Get well soon, Mariska!
