In the television fan justice system, SVU-based offenses are considered especially heinous. This is Mariska Hargitay's story! DUN DUN!

That's right, Mariska was a victim, in a very special way, of possibly the WORST backhanded compliment ever!

While dishing with Chelsea Handler on Chelsea Lately, Mariska talked about how while out to dinner with her husband Peter on a vacation in the Caribbean, a Law & Order: SVU fan told her she looked like a younger, prettier version of herself:

"We go out to dinner to Nobu, and Peter gets up to use the restroom for a second, and this woman - awesome - leans over and she goes, 'you look exactly like that woman on Law & Order.' She goes, 'But you're much younger, and much prettier.' And so I'm sitting there and going, you know, I'm trying to suss out if she's pulling my leg, or if she's doing shtick with me or if she's serious. So I said, 'Really?' and she said, 'Yes,' and she goes, 'much younger!' And I'm going like, 'Wow, should I be offended?' I said, 'Really? Much younger and prettier?' She goes, 'She's a little long in the tooth.' I said, 'Well, how old do you think she is?' And she goes, 'She's got to be pushing 60.' And I'm sitting there going, 'Wow, you said that out loud, and that's a little risky.' I ended up talking to her for a while, my husband came back, never told her, and then in the end…we picked up her tab and said, 'Tell her Detective Benson just paid her meal.' It was awesome."

Sometimes justice is oh so sweet!

Detective Benson: 1! Fan with poor facial recognition: -2342384! SRSLY! We hope she never gets put in front of a lineup!

While we're still waiting for this fan to confess to this crime, we hope she learned her lesson!

    She looks a lot like Bruce Jenner.

    Loved the story. And Mariska, which is really a beautiful woman, person must be even more beautiful. That's because Olivia Benson is very serious, is always pants and jackets. Mariska is always cheerful and jovial. I love his character on SVU.

    I love this woman. She is my idol, my inspiration. Beautiful, talented, simple, humble, unaffected. Loved the story. It is quite typical of Mariska, that everything is a joke.

    That was a good story. Love that she paid and it was from Dt. Benson. I know what that woman means because a lot of time performers are so much prettier in person. Mariska does look old and worn out on the show vs. how she looked in the beginning. Time to retire. And I'm glad she's still married to Peter.

    Re: irvinegirl – Time to retire? Do you expect detectives to 'retire' because they've ruddy earned an older face? T.V. detectives all have to be under 30 and runway ready in your world? It's a show about cops, not America's next model.

    "Mariska looks old and worn." Never. She just gets more beautiful with each passing year. She is a mature woman is not old. Her face is beautiful and most importantly, she is naturally beautiful. And the show, after leaving bald today Meloni, keeps getting better.

    I can't believe she's 50!! She looks so great. She's gorgeous and she has such a lively spirit. I adore Mariska.

    Mariska is amazing. I thought she had no more than 40 years. What a beautiful woman.

    The woman evidently thinks Mariska looks much younger and prettier in person. The camera doesn't love us all in the same way. It actually was a nice compliment.

    Loved this story. It is flattering for Mariska. I also assume she is even more beautiful in person. My dream is to meet her personally. Mariska is not only a beautiful and talented actress. She is a fantastic human being. And I truly love.

    Mariska has told this same story in slightly different ways for years now. If you look at all the shows she guest stars on and mentions a fan encounter it sounds just like this one.
