Nancy Kerrigan Wants Olivia Munn to Play Her in Biopic

Nancy Kerrigan Wants Olivia Munn to Play Her in Biopic

This week, Harding was dumped by her publicist/agent Michael A. Rosenberg for ordering that journalists who ask about the infamous incident with Kerrigan be fined $25,000.

During the ceremony on Thursday night, Munn parodied the acclaimed Tonya Harding biopic with a short trailer for I, Nancy. Tonya Harding is no hero.

Kerrigan was the victim of a plot to kneecap her - literally - prior to the 1994 Olympics.

When asked if she was upset with the cinematic portrayal of Harding, Kerrigan said the story is no longer part of her life. Simon Bruty, Getty Images Jeff Gillooy, ex-husband of figure skater Tonya Harding, is escorted out of the Federal Bureau of Investigation office after surrendering shortly after a warrant for his arrest was issued. "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 recreating a new positive image for her in the public eye". When Tonya pees herself, LaVona declares, "Skate wet!" The film centers on Harding's role in the attack on Kerrigan ahead of the 1994 Winter Olympics. The assault was traced to Gillooly and Eckhardt, and Harding was later banned from competition for life after pleading guilty to hindering prosecution. However, the award-winning figure skater has no opinion whatsoever because she has not found the time to sit and watch the movie.

"She wasn't embraced for her individuality enough", Janney told USA TODAY in a red-carpet interview. Don Ryan, AP Left to right: Kristi Yamaguchi, Tonya Harding, and Nancy kerrigan on the podium during the 1991 US Figure Skating Championships.

"It's not my fault", Harding screams to whomever will listen, and certainly this foul-mouthed redneck was not entirely at fault for all the mistakes she made. "But it's my faith in myself and in my father that comes back to me and makes me get back up off my butt and be something worth being proud of", she said. "Because you know how much that it had to have hurt".

Harding told ABC News earlier this month she "knew that something was up". It was later determined that Harding's ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and a friend, Shawn Eckardt, hired the assailant.

"I would have coffee and sometimes I would put brandy flavoring in it", Golden said.
