Nancy Kerrigan Hasn't Seen 'I, Tonya' Yet

Sufjan Stevens Pays Homage to Tonya Harding on New Song

But, it was last night's Los Angeles premiere that brought her biggest style statement yet.

'She loved it, ' the actress, 58, dished, also admitting that her childhood dream was to become a figure skater.

I Tonya is out on Friday.

Not only was the part of the hard-driving mother of USA skater Tonya Harding written expressly for Janney, it also took her back to a world she knows intimately.

She appears as the disgraced ice skater's mother LaVona in the dark comedy I, Tonya.

Kerrigan was clubbed in the thigh in an attack orchestrated by Harding's ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, that led to Harding being banned for life from the US Figure Skating Association.

Record Da Vinci painting to be exhibited at Louvre Abu Dhabi
Buyers from the Middle East and Asia have been snapping up masterpieces to fill regional museums - and pushing prices ever higher. Christie's said the artwork will be going to the museum, but declined to say whether the Louvre Abu Dhabi bought the painting.

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.

Janney plays LaVona Harding, who bullies and beats her young daughter to reach the top of a sport. "I'm sure it's hard to be objective when looking at one's own life, but I am told she is happy with it".

(L-R) Craig Gillespie, Sebastian Stan, Steven Rogers, Allison Janney, Tonya Harding, Paul Walter Hauser, Margot Robbie and Tom Quinn attend the after party for the premiere of "I, Tonya" on December 5, 2017 in Hollywood, California. Elevated by Margot Robbie and Allison Janney's shimmering performances, this entertaining account of those odd events earns the sort of high marks for creative interpretation that its protagonist complained eluded her. Once the story moves into the meat of the action, though - from Tonya moving in with Jeff to the insanity that follows - she paints a layered and unexpectedly sympathetic portrait as the most seemingly trustworthy of the film's alternating narrators.

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

Nancy Kerrigan hasn't seen the upcoming Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya just yet, a source close to Kerrigan exclusively tells Us Weekly.

Indeed, much of "I, Tonya" is defined by a class divide within the rarefied world of figure skating, where Harding - the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition - must constantly gripe about her unfair treatment compared to the prim, perfectly coiffed rivals with whom she competes.
