    Melissa posted an Instagram clip of herself on a street corner outside a Wienerschnitzel holding a sign in Mariska’s honor.

    ‘Honk if you’re PRAYING for Mariska Harigtay’s recovery!!!’ read the sign and indeed a couple of passing motorists did hit their horns.

    Melissa’s star power was not involved in the stunt as she was wearing a mask that would have made it impossible for passersby to recognize her.

    She was jumping around energetically on the sidewalk and getting fully into the spirit of her kindhearted gesture.

    ‘If you can’t produce quality care for your friend after ankle surgery, the next best this is obviously standing outside Wienerschnitzel with a sign,’ she captioned.

    Mariska announced her broken ankle on July 5 with an Instagram picture of one of her feet in a fuzzy slipper and the other in a cast.

    Her role on the show, which is nearing 500 episodes, has become so beloved that Taylor Swift named one of her cats Olivia Benson.

    Meanwhile Melissa became an international comedy star with an Oscar-nominated supporting performance in the 2011 film Bridesmaids.  

    Her upcoming films include the live-action remake of Disney’s The Little Mermaid in which she will play the villainous ‘sea-witch’ Ursula.
