  • Not only is Mariska beatuful, but she is also very giving.

    She is such an inspiration to many people. She is the founder and president of The Joyful Heart Foundation, which helps abuse victims. She decided to start this foundation because she would be apprached by people on the street, because of her role as Detective Olivia Benson on NBC's Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, and they tell her private information.

    Mariska is the daughter of two ledgends. Her mother, who died when Mariska was only three years old, was ledgendary Jayne Mansfeild. Her father was body builder Miklos "Mickey" Hargitay.

    Mariska went through a lot in 2006. She won an Emmy, and she gave birth the her first child, August. Through all of this, her father was with her. Her father, Miklos "Mickey" Hargitay passed away in September of 2006. Mariska was very close to him, but was glad that he could see his grandson.

    Now splitting her time between twelve hour work days on the set of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit and leading The Joyful Heart Foundation, Mariska still finds time to spend with her husband, Peter Herman, and baby, August, who she calls her "Good Luck Charm".
