On Friday, November 8, Mariska Hargitay was awarded the 2,511th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It’s in a very special spot, too: right next to her mom’s—legendary actress Jayne Mansfield.

The “Law & Order: Special Victim’s Unit” star was all smiles as she was joined by Debra Messing, Hilary Swank, Maria Bello, and "Law & Order" creator Dick Wolf.

Mariska and Debra’s close friendship is well documented, and the “Smash” actress looked thrilled to celebrate with her friend on this special day. Take a look at some of Debra’s personal pictures from the event, as well as other photos of Mariska getting her well-deserved Hollywood star below.
