mariska hargitay gi 'Law & Order: SVU' star Mariska Hargitay is a dead ringer for mom Jayne MansfieldMariska Hargitay has some good genes, and she showed visual proof of where exactly they come from.

The “Law & Order: SVU” star took to Instagram to post an image showing her and her mother, the late actress Jayne Mansfield, side-by-side. The photo was uploaded without a caption, but the image certainly speaks for itself.

Mansfield died in a car accident when Hargitay was only 3 years old. In 2013, Hargitay earned a Hollywood Walk of Fame star next to her mother, and said of the experience, “It was a deeply profound, meaningful day and a huge marker in my life. I felt so connected to her.”

“Law & Order: SVU” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
