There was something disconcerting watching Oprah drop her powerhouse speech about ending harassment and assault while a convicted felon sat a few feet away. She's played to spine-tingling, hilarious perfection by Allison Janney (who, along with Robbie, should be a safe bet for an Oscar nomination). "Why would I throw a steak knife at anybody?" she says, adding that Harding has "lied so much she doesn't know what isn't a lie anymore".
"I was like, I don't want to go through this again", Harding told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview released last week. "But I think I'm going to have to say 'have a good night, '" Harding said. She is played by Margot Robbie, who is also a producer on the film.

"I see a much softer, more positive side of Tonya than I've ever seen". "Now, she's happily married".
"I've been with my husband for seven years. We didn't live in filth or dirt or anything that I would call unusual".
Not that Harding is an angel; the film doesn't sidestep her reality and mistakes of her own making. "Enough apologizing", she said. I haven't seen the movie.
