Tonya Harding was back in the limelight on Tuesday night!
The former Olympic athlete hit the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of I, Tonya, a movie that fictionalizes her life as a professional figure skater and her ultimate fall from grace.
Harding, with her blonde hair blown out, wore a floor-length black dress and a matching necklace as she posed with actress Margot Robbie, who portrays her in I, Tonya. An eyewitness at the premiere told ET that Robbie purposely ran back onto the red carpet to take photos with Harding, 47, who started to get emotional and tear up upon seeing the 27-year-old actress.
Robbie also looked stunning in a gold Versace dress that she accessorized with a black belt and strappy heels.
Inside the premiere, Harding got another chance to pose with I, Tonya cast members Allison Janney and Sebastian Stan as well as director Craig Gillespie, writer Steven Rogers and producer Bryan Unkeless.
Janney, 58, stunned in a red Rani Zakhem gown that had gold embellishments at the bottom, and told ET's Carly Steel that since Harding never won a gold medal at the Olympics, she wanted to bring the gold to the premiere with her dress.
“It’s scary playing a real life person especially when that person is still very much alive,” she admitted. “Everyone has a recollection of what they think happened, and it’s kind of fun and interesting to show a different side of that story and maybe a side to Tonya that people weren’t expecting to see.”
Robbie also revealed that Harding gave her some workout advice when preparing for the role. “I was like, ‘I've been working on my legs. I’m trying to get stronger in my legs.’ She’s like, ‘Forget that, worry about your core strength.’ I was like, ‘OK, I'll do more sit ups,’” Robbie recalled, adding that she did at least 100 sit ups a day."
The strenuous exercise paid off as the role was very physical both on and off the ice.
