Catspiration: The Real Olivia Benson & Meredith Grey Pose Together to Taylor Swift's Delight
The TV idols who inspired the names of Taylor Swift's cats, Mariska Hargitay and Ellen Pompeo, posted a picture for the singer
The world’s biggest stars still have their fangirl moments.
The pair of talented ladies were an inspiration to Swift, 25, when she was searching for the perfect cat names. Meredith, the singer’s first feline, is a tribute to Pompeo’s Grey’s Anatomy character Meredith Grey, while new kitty/arm candy Olivia is named after Hargitay’s Law and Order: SVU detective Olivia Benson.
So when the women behind the Swift felines spotted each other at the Super Bowl, they knew they had to do something. The duo decided to pose for a photo, posting the smiley pic to Instagram with a call out to the “Blank Space” performer.
To say Swift was happy about the snap is an understatement. After seeing that Hargitay, 51, and Pompeo, 45, took a moment to honor her two kitties, Swift excitedly tweeted out the picture to her 51.8 million followers.
This isn’t the first time Hargitay has shown her love for the famous cat lady. In September, the actress posted a picture of herself wearing an Olivia Benson collar, along with praise for the Swift kitten’s name.
