The 57-year-old television star has been known for her thrilling, action-packed scenes on “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” since 1999 and it seems that lifestyle might be taking a toll.
Hargitay revealed on Instagram on Wednesday that she’d suffered multiple injuries. It was unclear when or how the injuries occurred.
“#ThatFeelingWhen, you go to the doctor, get an MRI and find out that you have a broken knee, a hairline fracture in your ankle, and a torn ligament,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself wearing a brace on one ankle and another brace on her opposite knee. “It’s always a good idea to go to the doctor. Immediately.”
