One of our favorite television actresses, Mariska Hargitay has suffered a partially collapsed lung and was a no show at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards. The Law & Order: SVU star was nominated for Best Actress in the television drama category.

Hargitay, 44, apparently discovered that she had suffered a collapsed lung while she and her family were on vacation. Her rep. confirmed that “Mariska Hargitay has been sidelined with a pneumothorax. She will appear in all episodes for the rest of the season of Law & Order: SVU.”

Mariska plays Detective Olivia Benson of the Special Victims Unit. She has won a Golden Globe and an Emmy for her portrayal. She is the daughter of 50’s blonde bombshell actress Jayne Mansfield and Mr. Universe Mickey Hargitay. Mansfield died at age 34 as a result of a 1967 car crash.
