Nancy Kerrigan Hasn't Seen 'I, Tonya' Yet

Nancy Kerrigan Hasn't Seen 'I, Tonya' Yet

Robbie not only turned heads for her shimmering ensemble, but she also made headlines by bringing figure skater Tonya Harding, whom she plays in the film, as her red carpet date. Bizarrely enough, it's a tribute to tribute to American figure skater Tonya Harding. However, she was forced to withdraw from the 1994 World Figure Skating Championships and was later banned for life from the United States Figure Skating Association.

Janney pretty almost steals the show as Tonya's foul-mouthed, chain-smoking mother, who constantly gripes about how she's squandering her limited resources on skating lessons and coaching for a girl, she's told, who "stands out because she looks like she chops wood every morning". And that was before her ex-boyfriend, Jeff Gillooly, hired an associate to bash in Nancy Kerrigan's knee in an attempt to prevent Kerrigan from competing in the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics.

Dark comedy I, Tonya, opening in U.S. movie theatres on Friday, is based on the life of Harding (played by Margot Robbie) and the infamous 1994 attack on her Olympic rival Nancy Kerrigan.

Janney plays LaVona Harding, who bullies and beats her young daughter to reach the top of a sport.

'Actually, it was a lot more complicated than that, the story of what happened to her. "She does care", said Janney.

"I come away from it looking like she has nothing to do with it", stated DeGeneres.
