When asked if she wanted to comment on the phenomenon of I, Tonya, Kerrigan had a maybe somewhat predictable answer.
“Not right now,” she said. “I really have nothing to say about it. I haven’t seen anything. I haven’t watched anything.”
"I've been busy," she continued.
“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.”
When asked about the movie specifically, about what she thought of the portrayal of Tonya Harding in Hollywood, Kerrigan said, "I don't know."
“At this point,” she said, “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’s weird, that’s for sure. A bizarre thing. The whole thing was crazy, being that it’s a story. I mean, come on.”
Later in the day, Kerrigan’s husband and manager Jerry Solomon called Shaughnessy and said, “Our position at this point is to say nothing. When we collectively, or Nancy individually, decide what to do, when we are ready to say something, we will. But until that time, we’ve been very consistent — and as you can imagine I’m getting calls from everybody under the sun from all around the world — so just to be consistent we’re really not saying anything at this point.”
So there you have it. But when Olivia Munn parodied I, Tonya at the Critics' Choice Awards in a fake trailer for I, Nancy, Kerrigan watched. And here's what she had to say:
We have a feeling that even though Nancy Kerrigan is very busy, working hard and attending skating championships and all that, she is keenly aware of what’s happening.
We can’t wait until she lets loose.
