Sufjan Stevens Pays Homage to Tonya Harding on New Song

Sufjan Stevens Pays Homage to Tonya Harding on New Song”

Actor Allison Janney poses on her star after it was unveiled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, California October 18, 2016.

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.

The movie portrays Harding's rough upbringing under a domineering mother in OR and then the attack that made her a notorious sports figure. Bizarrely enough, it's a tribute to tribute to American figure skater Tonya Harding. I had a coach, I worked really hard and I trained early in the morning and after school and I was obsessed with it. Harding was subsequently found guilty of hindering the prosecution a banned for life from figure skating.

"I, Tonya" premieres December 8 in NY and Los Angeles and widely on January 19.

"She is sort of a monster on the page and I had to find her humanity, and what she wanted in life".

While Robbie and screenwriter Steven Rogers met with Harding and Gillooly, Janney had little to go on to play LaVona except for a 1980s student documentary. Elevated by Margot Robbie and Allison Janney's shimmering performances, this entertaining account of those unusual events earns the sort of high marks for creative interpretation that its protagonist complained eluded her. Actually, it was a lot more complicated than that, the story of what happened to her.

Harding wore several memorable costumes during her career in the 1990s, which came to an end after an attack on rival Nancy Kerrigan.

Nancy Kerrigan hasn't seen the upcoming Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya just yet, a source close to Kerrigan exclusively tells Us Weekly.

After seeing the dark comedy in which Margot Robbie played Tonya, 'I came away from it [thinking] like she had nothing to do with it, ' Ellen said.

Indeed, much of "I, Tonya" is defined by a class divide within the rarefied world of figure skating, where Harding - the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition - must constantly gripe about her unfair treatment compared to the prim, perfectly coiffed rivals with whom she competes.
