Law & Order: SVU co-stars Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni have teased fans once again by sharing a steamy picture on social media.
The stars, who built plenty of onscreen chemistry during their two decades on the show together, gave another convincing performance as two people about to make out.
Meloni shared the picture in a post to Twitter, showing the couple gazing at each other, posed with their noses touching and lips close together.

The actor was compelled to share the picture after one fan wrote on Twitter, “can y’all imagine if one day @Chris_Meloni and @Mariska posts a picture like this pretending they are kissing with the caption #Rehearsing.”
“It would be the end of us and the end of the internet.”
“#Rehearsing what @Mariska?” Meloni wrote in response, sparking a fan frenzy.
The image garnered over 12,900 likes — but isn’t the first time the pair have alluded to a fake romance.
The pair previously discussed their onscreen chemistry with People, with Hargitay saying “there was so much shorthand between us, which all goes back to the trust we have.”
“He’s always made me feel like I could just jump off the ledge, the cliff, the bridge, and he would catch me, in so many ways, whether it was comedy or acting or friendship.”
Meloni added: “It’s simple. We have each other’s back.”
Hargitay also shared an image of the pair, with Meloni kissing her on the temple in a Valentine’s Day mock post in 2017.
“And then that happened… Just when I thought Valentine’s Day was over,” she wrote in the caption.
According to StyleCaster the pair never dated as Meloni was married to his wife Doris Sherman Williams four years prior to the show premiering in 1999.
Hargitay married her husband, Peter Hermann, in 2004, after meeting him during season three of the TV crime drama.
