Mariska Hargitay Calls Taylor Swift an 'Extraordinary Spirit'

The 51-year-old actress and founder of the organization was also joined by Debra Messing, Samantha Ronson, and Orange is the New Black‘s Samira Wiley.

Mariska recently penned a short profile on Taylor Swift for Time magazine.

Taylor Swift: megawatt talent, an extraordinary spirit, an impossibly charming blend of impishness, poise and radiance to spare,” she wrote. “All of it combines to rock me back on my heels every time I see her. Both literally and figuratively, she’s a woman who writes her own songs. That makes for music that’s personal, of the moment and impossible to resist.”
