Mariska Hargitay is closing the case on Mischa Barton rumors.
The "Law & Order: SVU" star called reports that the former "The Beautiful Life: TBL" was unprofessional while filming the NBC drama on Monday in New York "fiction."
"[She is] an amazing professional," Mariska told Access Hollywood's Shaun Robinson on the red carpet at the 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards in LA. "Lovely to work with. She does good work."
The star then turned to Access' cameras, declaring, "This gossip is fiction!"
The New York Daily News' Gatecrasher column previously claimed Mischa had "badly bombed" during filming of a guest spot as a prostitute on the NBC crime show.
