While it's not clear if it was Mariska who took part in the thrill-seeking cliff jump, she did caption it with the hashtag "#peterspics" which she often uses to signal her husband has taken the photo.

Adding to her caption, she also shared a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, which read: "'Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air' – Ralph Waldo Emerson." Many of her followers were left divided over the photo, with some believing it is Mariska in the snap, while others were not convinced.
