It finally happened! Olivia Benson, a.k.a. Mariska Hargitay, met her BFF Taylor Swift’s beloved cat named after her ‘Law & Order: SVU’ character, Olivia Benson — and the moment was magical! Watch the adorable video here.
Worlds collide! Though one Olivia Benson purrs and the other fights crimes, that certainly doesn’t mean it wasn’t an epic meeting of the Olivia’s. Mariska Hargitay, 51, met Taylor Swift’s adorable cat, named after Mariska’s Law & Order: Special Victims Unit character. Lucky for us, Taylor, 25, filmed the meeting and shared it on Instagram!
Taylor, who appears to take her cat everywhere she goes, introduced Mariska and Olivia while backstage at her Philadelphia concert for the latest show of her 1989 World Tour on June 13. It seems like Olivia Benson, the cat, showered Olivia Benson, the cop, with a lot of love! At one point, Mariska reached out her hand and Olivia snuggled up to it. Then, in possibly the cutest part of the clip, Olivia took a treat from the TV star as gently as you could possibly imagine. So adorable! We’ve been waiting for the Olivia’s to meet for a long time and it was just as epic as we imagined.
It seems like Mariska is having major bonding time with Olivia! It was Mariska’s second Taylor concert in a matter of days — she joined the singer with Cara Delevingne, 22, on stage on June 12, as the group recreated vibes from that now infamously fierce video for hit single “Bad Blood.”
Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour Welcomes Her Pals On Stage
Taylor’s 1989 World Tour is quickly turning into the BFF tour, as Taylor has been inviting a number of her pals to join her on stage for a song and a dance! She’s been surprising fans left and right as to who she brings on stage.
Taylor welcomed Little Big Town on stage and they performed their big hit, “Pontoon” together, on June 5 in Pittsburgh. Before that, Imagine Dragons singer Dan Reynolds, 27, and Taylor got “Radioactive” on May 30 at Ford Field in Detroit.
