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

Sufjan Stevens Pays Homage to Tonya Harding on New Song

"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.

Pantone's Color of the Year, Ultra Violet, Is the Perfect Hair Inspiration
Behr Paint suggests King's Court as a paint color that corresponds to Ultra Violet, Pantone's 2018 Color of the Year. Last year's top hue was Greenery and in 2016, Pantone picked two hues, Rose Quartz and Serenity.

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".

U.S. homeless population rises for first time in 7 years
In San Diego, the number of homeless veterans went down about 10 percent and now is 12 percent of the total homeless population. The 5,485 unsheltered people counted in the county in 2017 represent a 21 percent increase over last year's tally.

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".
