I am just gonna say it: The onscreen/offscreen badassness of Mariska Hargitay/Det. Olivia Benson rivals that of Connie Britton/Tami Taylor. Come at me, bro.
Mariska was overheard explaining to dinner companions the concept of her upcoming documentary, which has a producer but is searching for a director:
"There are hundreds of thousands of untested rape kits in police and crime- lab storage facilities. Every year, thousands of individuals take the courageous step of reporting their rape to the police . . . The evidence is then collected in a ‘Sexual Assault Evidence Collection Kit’ — a rape kit . . . And yet, hundreds of thousands of times, a decision is made not to process the evidence. Too difficult to prosecute, too murky, too expensive — not a priority."
“When you don’t test a rape kit, it sends the message that’s it’s not a serious crime, and I’m beyond outraged.”
ICYMI, there are LOTS of A+ SVUs about this, but that one with Jennifer Love Hewitt was especially heinous. [Page Six]
During a London stand-up show, Russell Brand made a joke about how boring having sex with Katy Perry was. "When you're a monk, you're not allowed to have sex with anyone. When you're married, it's one person. That's one more than a monk. It's not that different. I'd be having sex thinking, 'think of anyone, anyone else.'"
