Tonya Harding admits that she knew of plan to attack Nancy Kerrigan

She can play me anytime: Nancy Kerrigan tweeted her approval on Thursday night after Critics Choice host Olivia Munn starred in spoof trailer for I Nancy

Robbie picked up a Critics' Choice Award for her performance on Thursday night and her film, I, Tonya, is picking up Oscar buzz - but Kerrigan won't be seeing it anytime soon, and she'd like reporters to stop asking her about the movie, which details an attack on the figure skater, organized by Harding's ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly.

"At this point, it's so much easier and better to just be.it's not really part of my life", she stated. "I am sad as I write this; but at the same time I'm happy that I had such an adventure with the movie and with re-creating a new positive image for her in the public eye", he wrote.

Stars of "I, Tonya" - Margot Robbie, Allison Janney, Sebastian Stan, and Paul Walter Hauser - along with screenwriter Steven Rogers and director Craig Gillespie spoke about Variety's Screening Series presented by FilmStruck.

Harding admitted that she failed to tell authorities what she knew about the attack on fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan.

"Enough apologizing", Harding said.

Though Harding has long maintained she had no knowledge of Gillooly and Eckhardt's plan to attack Kerrigan, many believed Harding was in on the scheme, and she has been since been ostracised from sport and cultural circles.


Now she has changed her story, saying she overheard Gillooly and Eckhart talking about "taking somebody out" to make sure Harding won.

She is the rare figure skater to be sent to not one, but two Olympic Games - the 1992 Olympics in Albertville, France, followed by the 1994 Games in Lillehammer, Norway. "I didn't know it was a real life person". We both have wonderful lives. Her abusive childhood, marriage, and more are included, but Kerrigan is upset Harding is shown as a victim. "That's it", Kerrigan said. "They didn't just give them to me". I would never wish that anyone. I mean, my face was bruised.

Here's what you need to know about Tonya Harding.

Harding didn't deny the incident helped create more of a buzz around US women's figure skating.

Olympic journalist Philip Hersh tweeted, when he shared Rosenberg's Facebook post, that Harding has "a long history of biting the hands that fed her" and had "backed into a corner the agent who made [I, Tonya] happen". Later, authorities discovered that Harding's ex-husband and bodyguard masterminded the attack in hopes of improving Harding's chances at the US Trials and the Olympics.

"I didn't abuse any of my children", Golden added. "I don't care how it portrays me. I could care less about that movie than the dirt outside".
