Harding wore several memorable costumes during her career in the 1990s, which came to an end after an attack on rival Nancy Kerrigan. "I don't think we exonerate her completely but I don't think she is as guilty as we all remember her to have been", she said.
Stevens's song - a gentle, wistful (of course) ode to Harding's talent, audacity, and resilience - was released on his record label's website, along with an essay by Stevens about the skater, and a video that sets the song to Harding's famous 1991 US Nationals performance, where she became the first American woman to land a triple axel in an global competition.
And Allison Janney revealed what the real-life Tonya Harding thought about the film after meeting her at Wednesday's Los Angeles premiere, when she appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday. LaVona talks local coach Diane Rawlinson (Julianne Nicholson) into training 4-year-old Tonya when Diane sees what a natural she is on the ice. Often breaking the fourth wall, the story is told through a series of unreliable narrators explaining their sides of the insane plot line, leaving what really happened lying murkily somewhere in their combined narrative.
Owen Gleiberman, Variety: "I, TONYA, a riff on the Tonya Harding saga starring Margot Robiie as the infamous figure skater the whole world decided it loved to hate, is a fresh, chancy and wickedly enjoyable movie". Now I'm going to bet on you cos I know you're a cheater'. "She does care", said Janney.
"I had dreams of being an Olympic figure skater". "She watched the film", director Craig Gillespie exclusively told Us Weekly in November. "But nobody can pull focus from Robbie, an intense actress finally sinking her teeth into a meaty role as a woman who became, in her own wry acknowledgment, nothing more than a punch line".
Tonya Harding has gone from a disgraced Olympic figure skater to wowing Hollywood stars on the red carpet. But the main takeaway is a believable one: "that Harding, just 23 at the time, deserved better than yet another beat-down meted out by a much-entertained public".
