Mariska Hargitay, Real Life Crusader
Happiness is having a loving family, success, and being able to rip off the Ayatollahs to help update rape kits.
Mariska Hargitay has every reason to be the happiest woman in the world. She has the longest-running series in television in Law and Order SVU, she has a loving husband in Peter Herrmann (a periodic supporting cast member portraying lawyer Trevor Langan), and together they have numerous children, biological and adopted.
Men want her (no shock given her splendid shapeliness, inherited from her mother Jayne Mansfield as well as her dad Mickey Hargitay) and women want to be her. They doubly want to be her because she has been almost more active with her off-screen charity the Joyful Heart Foundation - which works with the No More campaign - both dealing with domestic violence, and recently she helped drive updating and improving the examination of DNA in the backlog of sexual assault cases - with at least some of the money coming from money seized from banks helping Islamic terrorists.
Ms. Hargitay redefines going the extra mile here.
