Margot Robbie meets Tonya Harding at I, Tonya premiere

The stars aligned for Allison Janney when she dressed up in a cheap fur coat, perched a parakeet on her shoulder, and chain-smoked and swore through figure-skating movie "I, Tonya".

Margot Robbie and Tonya Harding on the red carpet.

The figure skater once famous for her '90s-style outfits, complete with a scrunchie, wore a floor-length gown with orange straps as she mingled with stars of the film, including Allison Janney, who plays her mother, and Sebastian Stan, who plays Gillooly. I had a coach, I worked really hard and I trained early in the morning and after school and I was obsessed with it. It made headlines around the world - and all eyes soon turned to Harding, who was accused of plotting the attack with her ex-husband and her bodyguard.

Dark comedy "I, Tonya", opening in US movie theaters on Friday, is based on the life of Harding (played by Margot Robbie) and the infamous 1994 attack on her Olympic rival Nancy Kerrigan. "I just wanted to giver her a hug, 'cause back when we first heard about this story we were told what to think about her and we were told she was a villain".

While Robbie and screenwriter Steven Rogers met with Harding and Gillooly, Janney had little to go on to play LaVona except for a 1980s student documentary.

"I don't know if I should even say "Hi" to her, I mean, I play Jeff!" "She does care", said Janney. "And I think people come away with a lot more compassion for her". "I don't think we exonerate her completely but I don't think she is as guilty as we all remember her to have been", she said.
