Hargitay's Lung

Collapses Again

1/12/2009 8:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Mariska Hargitay's suffered a partially collapsed lung over the Xmas holiday and it collapsed again today.

Her rep only would confirm that a partially collapsed lung has sidelined the actress.

We're told she has been readmitted to the hospital but will not miss any episodes. We do not know her condition.

Hargitay was sledding in the Hamptons around New Year's Eve but we're now told the cause of the lung problem is unknown.

It is a shame that these people with such negative comments have nothing better to do than just be mean to someone they have never met! Ms.Hargitay is a lovely woman who has a very painful condition. A collapsed lung is very painful and I wish her a speedy recovery. It is hard on a mother to be sick an away from her child. The world is a bad enough place without people just being mean for the sake of being mean. Whatever happened to the phrase " if you can't say something nice,just don't say anything at all" ?

There are a lot of us who love you, Mariska, so we wish you a quick
and complete recovery! We missed you at the Golden Globes, hope
to see you there next year for sure!

As for all the losers who are sending you the opposite of love here,
ignore them, they are whiners who only WISH they were you!

You Go Girl!

I wish her a speedy recovery, I love her! She has done a lot to help rape victims. (In real life, not just on her show.) And she does look exactly like her mother!

god forbid you end up in an accident or in the hospital!    

seriously, TMZ originally title was horrible!

as for the people leaving comments about the way she looks, I'd say to look in the mirror before you cast judgment on anyone!

Get better soon, MH! Hope you're back to SVU soon!

To all these people who are so insensitive, you can "suck it" as Tina Fey would say. And Mariska, we are all praying for you. Get well soon.

Peace and Love, your fan.

Mariska is a favorite of mine. Not only is she beautiful, but so good as Olivia Benson, that you forget you are watching an actor playing a part. I wish her well.

To everyone who posted on her looks...This is the most natrually beautiful woman I have ever seen. It's truely unbelievable that she will be 45 in a few days. There really are not words to exactly what a wonderful person she is. She has touched so many lives through that show, mine included. She has gone through so much in her life and now this...Mariska you and your family are in my prayers.
