If you’re anything like me, the one thought you had walking out of the theater after watching ‘I, Tonya,’ was, “I wonder what Nancy Kerrigan thought of it?”
Well, it looks like we won’t be getting an answer any time soon. The Boston Globe spoke to Kerrigan on the phone this week, and she revealed that she has not watched the film. She’s been “busy” living her life.
“I really have nothing to say about it. I haven’t seen anything. I haven’t watched anything. I’ve been busy. I was at the national [figure skating] championships this week so I didn’t watch the Golden Globes. I haven’t seen the movie. I’m just busy living my life.”
It’s clear she still doesn’t have much sympathy for Tonya Harding. Even though it appears Harding is a victim of her own childhood, Kerrigan believes she is the true victim.
Kerrigan admitted she doesn’t really know how to feel about Hollywood’s romance with Harding…
“I don’t know. At this point, it’s so much easier and better to just be . . . it’s not really part of my life. As you say, I was the victim. Like, that’s my role in this whole thing. That’s it. It is weird, that’s for sure. A bizarre thing. The whole thing was crazy, being that it’s a story. I mean, come on.”
If it makes Kerrigan feel any better, I didn’t really enjoy the film. I went in expecting to love it and left a little disappointed.
