Margot Robbie & Tonya Harding Look Like Longtime BFFs At 'I, Tonya' Premiere

But the movie is Harding's story, in what Variety summarizes as "a riff on the Tonya Harding saga starring Margot Robbie as the infamous figure skater the whole world decided it loved to hate".

I, Tonya comes into theaters on December 8, if sports dramedies are your thing. "She's a complicated subject for a song partly because the hard facts of her life are so odd, disputable, heroic, unprecedented, and indelibly American". In one of the biggest scandals in sports history, her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and bodyguard hired a hitman to injure Nancy Kerrigan seven weeks before the 1994 Winter Olympics. Gillooly and Stan were eventually found guilty, and Tonya pleaded guilty to hindering the prosecution, and was subsequently banned for life from the U.S. Figure Skating Association.

However, after recovering in time for the Winter Olympics, she won the silver medal, with Harding coming eighth.

Tonya Harding's dramatic rise and fall was fiercely followed by the media, and she very quickly became the brunt of jokes, the subject of tabloid headlines and public outcry.

The actress Rachel marie will be accompanied, among others, the young Owen Teague ( Bloodline ) and Brenna Harding. Season four will have six episodes, each telling a standalone story, and trailers have been released for each.

I admit, early drafts of this song contained more than a few puns, punch lines and light-hearted jabs-sex tapes and celebrity boxing make for an entertaining narrative arc.

The conversation snakes (get it) its way from there through Outback Steakhouse, working in service jobs, and learning to ice skate, with Robbie demonstrating a much better ability to open a bottle with another bottle than I have ever been able to master.

Believe it or not, notorious figure skater Tonya Harding has a connection to Batman - and it is actually pretty special.

"I got my initial ideas while walking around at night on the set of Gotham", Elfman previously said of his inspiration for the film's score. "I took the corners of her eyes and used lash adhesive and just pulled them down to give them a little bit of a droop like Tonya had".
