Mariska Hargitay reflects on turning 60

January 23 will mark Hargitay's 60th birthday, and in a recent interview with People, she shared how she feels about the major milestone.

“I’m so excited. I announce it constantly. I’m proud of it. I’m stronger than I’ve ever been,” she told the outlet. "The age thing was never something I was scared of. I didn’t get cast until I was 35, and then the show kept going as I aged. At 45, we’d been on for 10 years and I just met my husbandThe man of my dreams. I got married at 40. I had August at 42. So it was like defying all the odds."

She added, "I won an Emmy and all these major things kept happening. I didn’t take anything for granted. My beautiful children.  And then in my 50s, my foundation is on fire, and I’m on a show that matters, and I’m counting my lucky stars. How did I get here? And why does nobody care how old I am?”
