Mariska Hargitay recently posted a picture of her face and that of her mother, the legendary actress and sex symbol Jayne Mansfield in a split image and the resemblance was uncanny. It is almost as if viewers are looking at the brunette duplicate of Jayne Mansfield. The Law & Order star did not post a caption, likely because the similarity of the pictures made the need for comment 'moot'.
The attractive actress who is known for her exceptional dramatic acting performances on the show "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" also recently hosted "No More Excuses" on the USA Network.
The show focused on making people more aware of domestic violence and sexual assault and she did her usual fantastic job. Her star presence helped bring attention to this issue and also garnered the support of numerous stars including the cast of her hit show. This is one of her charity causes which has a special place in her heart and for which she has created the non-profit organization the Joyful Heart Foundation.
She has also in 2014 embarked on a new challenge as she has stepped behind the camera to direct an episode of her show "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit." Her move in this direction has some entertainment insiders speculating as to whether she is considering making a film to bring attention to the issue of sexual assault and domestic violence.
While no one knows what path the gorgeous Mariska Hargitay is planning to take with regards to directing the one thing that is certain is that whether she is in front of the camera or behind the camera she is focused on making a positive impact on the lives of women with her show and her foundation.
