Separated at Birth: Janine & Mariska

Co-Worker Advisory: The following blog post may be considered NOT SAFE FOR WORK. Reader discretion is advised.

This thought, that Law & Order: SVU actress Mariska Hargitay and adult film star Janine Lindemulder were separated at birth, has been in the back of my head for months. I swear, everytime I’m watching SVU with Jenn, I flash to an unmentionable scene because they really do look very similar.

I’ve cherry-picked a photo of Janine with short, dark hair, but the rest of the information is solid. You be the judge. Are these two hotties secretly related?

  Janine Lindemulder Mariska Hargitay
DOB 11/14/68 01/23/64
Height 5’8″ 5’7 1/2″
Measurements 34C-24-35 36C-24-36
Hair Usually blonde Brown
Eyes Brown Brown

I don’t have any other illuminating statistics or facts other than what I believe is a strong resemblance. They both have very angular faces and husky voices, if that matters. They’re both stunning “actresses”.

I think I’m on to something here. Respond via the comments if you’ve got more “evidence”.

UPDATE: Welcome Fleshbot readers! And thanks for the potential addition of Jillian Barberie to this silly, yet hot, list.

    Mariska was of course in the car when her mother Jayne Mansfield was decapitated in a car accident in June of 1967.

    I just saw a website that said Janine was born in 1977. I too saw this porn film and thought for sure it was her! Is Mariska leading a double life?????

  3. Separated at birth: Lisa Rinna and Nicholson’s Joker…

    So Jenn and I have been watching the new season of Dancing with the Stars and generally enjoying ourselves, save for when Master P. or Tatum O’Neal “dances”. One of the “performers” who certainly stands out is Lisa Rinna….

  4. SVWho?…

    Yesterday’s announcement concerning pay increases for Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni and the two-year extension the show was given got me thinking about my recent relationship with Law and Order: SVU.
    Jenn and I have definitely been fans since…

    Seperated at Birth: Christopher Meloni and Elias Koteas
    I may not be the first to think of this one, but I’ve got better data!
    Plus, I seriously thought Meloni was in the first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie u…

    I think now Janine will be in the porn version “Lust & Order: Sex Case Unit.” Plus I think Chris Meloni and Richard Burgi were seperated at birth.

    i believe that they are secret twins because they do look so similar. when i first saw this picture i thought to myself maybe mariska sexied it up a bit. these pictures so similar that it makes you wonder. the only sure way is to take a blood test.

    Yes! When I first saw Elias Koteas in “The Thin Red Line”, I thought he was Christopher Meloni from “Law and Order SVU”. I felt it strange not seeing Mr. Meloni’s name in the ending movie credits.and thought maybe he was uncredited or had changed his name. Then I saw Mr. Koteas in the movie “Fallen” and decided to get to the bottom of this identity mystery. They even sound alike when speaking. Thank God I am not the only one who has noticed their remarkable resemblance. My question is why doesn’t Hollywood ever cast actors, that look alike, as family members on screen. The last time virtual twins acted together was Telly Savalas’s look alike in an episode of Kojak years ago. What about featuring Nia Peeples and Valerie Bertinelli, Jackee Harry and Kim Whitley, and most of all Sophia Vergara and her splitting image, fellow Columbian, Miss Columbia. C’mon Hollywood. Get with the program!
