Mickey Hargitay and Jayne Mansfield
Posted on Wednesday, December 31st, 2014 by John Wood
One bodybuilder who “made good” was Mickey Hargitay, who married the famous blonde bombshell Jayne Mansfield in 1958. Hargitay rose through the ranks in the AAU Mr. America contests in the early fifties before winning the NABBA Mr. Universe title in 1955. He trained at Bob Higgins’ Gym in Indianapolis, Indiana and in York, PA on occasion. Hargitay appeared on the cover of a number of strength magazines throughout his career and at some point and unbeknownst to just about everyone, he had his own signature line of weights. Mickey and Jayne’s daughter Mariska became a big star on the show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and you’ll see her on TV just about every night of the week.
