Mariska Hargitay was a no show at last night’s Golden Globes, even though she was nominated for her role as Olivia on Law and Order: SVU. And that made me sad…boohooo! I really like her, as an actress and as an individual. Well, the REASON she didn’t show up? A Pneumothorax (I love it when i get to use my science background :-) That’s a collapsed lung, just so you know.
“Mariska Hargitay has been sidelined with a pneumothorax (a partially collapsed lung),” the rep says.
In spite of her condition, the 44-year-old actress “will appear in all episodes for the rest of the season of Law & Order: SVU,” the rep says.
The injury did NOT occur on set, but rather while she was on vacation.
Get better girl!
