'I, Tonya': Allison Janney Reveals What Tonya Harding Thinks of the Biopic

"I, Tonya" announces up front that it's based on "irony free, wildly contradictory" interviews with the participants, yielding a darkly satiric comedy with the tenor of a Coen brothers movie.

The biopic "I, Tonya" has the infamous Olympian Tonya Harding back in the spotlight, but it sounds like she doesn't hate it.

The movie portrays Harding's rough upbringing under a domineering mother in OR and then the attack that made her a notorious sports figure. "I was quite graceful on the ice but I'm six feet (183 centimetres) tall and ultimately didn't think I was going to be able to do the jumps that were required to go to the Olympics", Janney, now 58, said.

Bayonetta 3 Announced Exclusively for Nintendo Switch
Bayonetta 3 teaser trailer didn't reveal any major details aside from a logo reveal, which you can see in the video below. A few months back, we predicted that Nintendo would bring Bayonetta to the Nintendo Switch.

One aspect Harding might appreciate is that the movie doesn't paint her as the villain that many saw her as in 1994, when her ex-husband and bodyguard hired a man to attack her chief competitor, Nancy Kerrigan.

The culprits, fellow US skater Tonya Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt, were soon caught.

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. "There were parts she didn't like but I think mostly she was really excited about it", Allison told Ellen. She sort of brushed it off in a way that made me think "Wow".

Saudi prince bought record-breaking $450 million Da Vinci painting
Normally, news of a wealthy and powerful member of Saudi Arabia's royal family buying a piece of art would not raise any interest. The winning bid in the November 15 auction at Christie's in NY was made anonymously by phone using a Christie's representative.

Janney well recalls the Harding-Kerrigan incident, but she came away from the film with a different view.

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".

She added that Harding "was villainized so much by the media that people actually remember the whole thing totally differently".
