She also spent a fair amount of time at the Globes trying to rewrite Tonya's biographical history. "I don't want her anywhere near my son. And Sebastian was like, 'Margot, where are you going?' He went to pick me up because I was continuing to tear down off set and I turned and punched him in the head". My third column, about the scrappy little local skater, led to the creation of the official Tonya Harding Gillooly Fan Club.

"Who is Tonya Harding?" is the unspoken question at the heart of director Craig Gillespie's darkly comic biopic, depicting the rise-and very public fall-of the two-time Olympic figure skater more renowned for her involvement in a 1994 assault on fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan than her considerable professional accomplishments.

In the early 1990s, Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding were two of the most famous figure skaters in the world. He explained Harding insisted reporters sign "an affidavit staying that they won't ask her anything "about the past" or they'll be fined $25,000".

Presented in faux documentary style, the characters in "I, Tonya" speak to the camera during the interview segments and sometimes break the fourth wall to address the audience when the "dramatization" takes too much artistic license (in one intense scene, a shotgun-wielding Harding stops to clarify that she "never did" what the film is about to show her doing).

"I really have nothing to say about it".

While speaking with ABC's Amy Robach, Harding said she figured out her ex-husband and his buddy were behind the attack on Kerrigan.


Business Insider asked Rogers before the movie opened in December if he was motivated at all to get to the bottom of what Harding knew before writing the script. "I didn't abuse any of my children", Golden hit back in a rare interview with ABC News. Educated white people who go to arthouse movies have been trained to think twice before they start "othering" black people.

Though we certainly feel sorry for Kerrigan, and no attempt is made to dodge Harding's complicity in what went down, putting the focus on one over the other allows for an interesting dynamic. "I can't believe she said that". "You know how much that it had to have hurt".

"Why would I throw a steak knife at anybody?" "Spanked? Yes, spanked. Absolutely positively, you got to show them right from wrong".

"I've been busy. I was at the national [figure skating] championships this week so I didn't watch the Golden Globes", Kerrigan told the Globe. I haven't seen anything. Golden also denied she ever threw a steak knife that struck Harding in the arm during an argument.

"I remember she dragged me into the bathroom and beat me with a hairbrush, literally", she said, in an incident confirmed by another woman who walked in on the beating.

"I don't give a (expletive) about the movie", said LaVona "Sandy" Golden, who was played by Allison Janney in the movie. "We didn't live in filth or dirt or anything that I would call unusual".
