I was at Mariska’s filming of Inside the Actor’s Studio. Here are all the tidbits of info I remember her talking about:
- She still calls Chris Meloni her “partner” and it was really adorable. She mentioned how she almost quit the show when he left because “they started this thing together” and she thought they would “finish it together.”
- She talked about the moment she met Chris at the audition for Benson/Stabler. I don’t want to give away the whole story, but it involves his Jesus tattoo, him making a joke and the instant connection they had, like “two souls that fit together” 
- She cried about her parents multiple times (5+ times). Talked about the crash that claimed her mother (Jayne Mansfield) and showed her scar.
- She told a story about auditioning for ER, this is a good one too that I don’t want to give away. But basically she doesn’t back down or take no for an answer when something feels right.
- She said Chris, being from NY, had the perfect “pimp walk” when they started SVU. She said her walk was nothing like that. Then got up and imitated the funniest walk. She has since mastered the Olivia Benson walk.
- They played the “you and this job are about the only things I’ve got anymore” scene from Fault to show the chemistry between her and Chris.
- We watched two of her favorite clips from this last season…the first was the “I just want to live” scene with Pablo. The second was the final Russian Roulette scene in ‘Beast’s Obsession.’ Peter plugged his ears and turned away during both clips. Mariska’s had so much emotion on her face while watching the scenes that James Lipton said he was “never seen anything like it in 20 years.”
- JHF and No More were discussed for about 45 minutes. She introduced multiple people from the foundation and talked about her new documentary “Shelved” about the rape kit back log.
- Peter and her both talked about when they first met on the set of SVU. How she called him a ‘kraut’ and he said meeting her was like “life.” When asked if it was a smooth road to marriage they both laughed and said “no, no, no.” 
- She talked a lot about the process of acting (of course), I am not in the acting business, but her passion is inspiring. She talked about giving 500% of yourself and always being present in the moment of the scene you are doing. She is so committed, it is amazing.
- She mentioned that she didn’t sleep for 3 days before filming the Surrender Benson scenes and Beast’s Obsession scenes. When reading the script, she said, she didn’t think she could do those scenes. (damn you academy, where is her Emmy?!)
- She revealed that she has been in therapy on and off since the start of SVU. Because the material is very heavy, her foundation works with such difficult topics, that you need to “empty that glass.” 
- Her least favorite word is “moist.” 
- Her favorite words are open, in spirit, sparkling, laugh, love
- Curse words: shite, f***nut
- She said she looks up to “debra winger” as an actress, but accidently said “debra messing” and that “she would like that.”
- She sang a song in Hungarian from her time at summer camp. 
- She spoke French with an audience member during a break. It was beautiful.
- Someone’s phone rang during the interview. James Lipton was mad, Mariska’s said “tell them I’m not here!” Then said “I have until 11pm to talk people!”
- She hates the sound of ambulances.
- Her and Peter had this amazing emotional hug when she was done. And he kissed her cheek.
- Her father (Mickey Hargitay) built the pink palace that Jayne Mansfield lived in. He also built Mariska a house in California back when she was just starting acting.
- She talked about how in general, she is not a confident person. She has her “moments of confidence” but she still feels like she is finding out who she is. And that is the purpose of life’s journey, discovering yourself.
- She said multiple times that she believes it was God’s plan to give her the role of Olivia Benson
- She also mentioned being “open” to whatever the future holds for SVU and her life. She mentioned the possibility of moving to LA next year, staying in NY, staying with SVU, directing/producing only for SVU…that she is open to whatever life throws at her.
- She will be directing another SVU episode for season 16 in December. She is also credited as a producer this season.
- The writers were there supporting her. (side note: I ran into Rob Cohen when I was leaving the bathroom. As in knocked into him. Heard him mention to someone that he already knew most of the stories she was telling, but that a few things surprised him).
- Question “If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?” She gave the double thumbs-up.

a few photos from Mariska at the taping of Inside the Actors Studio on August 5, 2014. Love how one of her first actions on the break was to hug her husband.
