Mariska Hargitay, Barbara Boxer speak at UCLA 2011 Commencement (Photos)
Mariska Hargitay was on the Westwood campus of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (TFT) on Friday. The actress from Law and Order SUV was receiving a Distinguished Alumni Award. The Emmy and Golden Globe winner wasn’t the only familiar face in the crowd as Senator Barbara Boxer was giving the commencement speech.
Mariska Hargitay is probably best known for her role as Detective Olivia Benson on Law & Order: SVU. The show has affected her in real life and the 12 seasons on NBC has actual inspired her to help others. In 2001 Hargitay founded the Joyful Heart Foundation. Catering to those who have been abused, the foundation helps educate and empower people.
With the day’s ceremony including an Emmy and Golden Globe winner, there is no doubt the students who got the chance to graduate with Hargitay had an experience of a lifetime. Sharing what she has done with her life and how it has empowered others, the honor is very deserving.
Take a look at the photo slide show. Mariska Hargitay and Barbara Boxer even posed together!

adrainsmith: This show is incredible, the charactor of Olivia Benson is the most addicting person on the show, you just can't get enough of her or the crime plots that continue to astound after 14 years!
