Mariska Hargitay Gets Checked Out By City Workers While Filming ‘Law & Order: SVU’

Mariska Hargitay got checked out by construction workers while filming scenes for Law & Order: SVU in downtown Manhattan on Monday, January 13. The actress was clad in a black coat and matching trousers, and the flirtatious encounter was seemingly written into the script, as a cameraman was on hand to catch the exchange.

“She and I hit it off right from the get-go,” Chris said at the The Paley Center Salutes Law & Order: SVU event at the beginning of January. Mariska echoed his praise and said their working relationship was one of “instantaneous ease, chemistry, trust, comfort.”

During the same panel, Mariska spoke about how difficult it was to deal with all the cast exits over the years. “It was really hard. It’s been really difficult over the years to see people leave and painful and scary. I didn’t want them to go. It’s life. One door closes and another one opens. People come into our lives and then they leave their lives. You feel all of that and it’s a lot to feel and you keep on going. You keep on going,” she admitted.

“There is no truth to this at all. Most of the people I’ve worked with are amazing, I love almost everyone I’ve ever worked with. Mariska and I were not the closest, but that doesn’t mean we have any animosity towards each other, we’re still very supportive of each other. She’s a great mom, she’s great as Benson, she’s doing great charity work. I have never talked about the cast members like this, it’s salacious and untrue,” Diane told Page Six.
