Chris Pratt & Margot Robbie Cracked Some Frothies For A Chat About Oz

Pratt's temporary duties as host of Jimmy Kimmel Live afforded him the luxury of interviewing our very own shining star, Margot Robbie, in the lead up to the release of her latest movie I, Tonya, which tells the story of figure skater Tonya Harding. Below is the song and part of the essay.

The figure skater achieved sporting notoriety in the 90s after her ex-husband Jeff Gillooly and her bodyguard Shawn Eckhardt hired Shane Stant to break the leg of Tonya's main figure skating rival Nancy Kerrigan, in an attempt to stop her competing in the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer. Harding herself pleaded guilty to conspiracy to hinder the prosecution. Nancy Kerrigan recovered from her injury and won a silver medal at the Winter Olympics. As for Harding? - The U.S. Figure Skating Association banned her for life from skating. He ends the essay on a positive: "I admit, early drafts of this song contained more than a few puns, punch lines and light-hearted jabs-sex tapes and celebrity boxing make for an entertaining narrative arc". Bizarrely enough, it's a tribute to tribute to American figure skater Tonya Harding. "But the more I edited, and the more I meditated, and the more I considered the wholeness of the person of Tonya Harding, I began to feel a conviction to write something with dignity and grace, to pull back the ridiculous tabloid fodder and take stock of the real story of this odd and magnificent America hero". She recently said: "Ever since we got the company up and running, I was like: 'We need to work with young directors, first- and second-time directors - male or female; we need to work with female writers, directors, actresses, obviously, and Aussies wherever possible". "I took the corners of her eyes and used lash adhesive and just pulled them down to give them a little bit of a droop like Tonya had".
