Nancy Kerrigan hasn’t watched seen I, Tonya yet, so she has nothing to say about the movie.
The film depicts the attack on the figure skater, Nancy Kerrigan, which made headlines in early 1994. The incident occurred just weeks before she won a silver medal at the Lillehammer Olympics.
Kerrigan told The Boston Globe, “I really have nothing to say about it. I haven’t seen anything. I haven’t watched anything.” She said, “I’ve been busy. I was at the national [figure skating] championships this week so I didn’t watch the Golden Globes. I haven’t seen the movie. I’m just busy living my life.”
Actress Caitlin Carver played a role of Kerrigan in I, Tonya as a sympathetic portrayal of Tonya Harding’s life and Harding’s involvement in the attack on her rival figure skater, Kerrigan.
Kerrigan told the Globe, “It’s not really part of my life. As you say, I was the victim. Like, that’s my role in this whole thing. That’s it.” She went on and says, “It is weird, that’s for sure. A bizarre thing. The whole thing was crazy, being that it’s a story. I mean, come on.’’
At this moment, many of the original players from the film I, Tonya have weighed in on what they think about Craig Gillespie’s directorial biographical black comedy film. Tonya Harding remarked appearance at the 75th annual Golden Globes Award ceremony on January 7, Sunday. She was a guest of honor at the award show and also became a subject of ABC News special that aired on Thursday night in which And LaVona “Sandy” Golden (role played by Allison Janney) weighed in on the film. Harding is currently on a redemption tour, she has now said that she remembers her ex-husband discussing how “maybe we should take somebody out so we can make sure she gets on the team.”
