Sebastian Stan, who plays Harding's ex-husband Jeff Gillooly in the film, told PEOPLE on the red carpet that he wasn't sure how to approach Harding.

Sufjan Stevens has shared a new song, "Tonya Harding".

Margot Robbie plays the infamous figure skater Tonya Harding in the new film I, Tonya. He accompanied the song with an essay, "Tonya Harding, My Star", where he revealed about wanting to write a song about the disgraced figure skater since seeing her at the 1991 U.S. Figure Skating Championships. Below is the song and part of the essay. In one of the biggest scandals in sports history, her ex-husband, Jeff Gillooly, and bodyguard hired a hitman to injure Nancy Kerrigan seven weeks before the 1994 Winter Olympics.

I, Tonya is due for release on December 8.

Weeks after the attack, Kerrigan went on to win a silver medal in the 1994 Winter Olympics.

"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", Stevens writes.

Margot, 27, couldn't contain her excitement as she posed with Tonya, 47, on the red carpet ahead of the LA screening. "I not only made her lips narrower but I dragged down the corners of her mouth". The actress previously opened up to W about the fascinating experience of meeting Harding for the first time before I, Tonya began filming, which she felt was integral to fully understanding her essence and character. In fact, in 1991, Harding wowed at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, do in large part thanks to her landing the super hard triple axel, making Harding the first American woman to land the jump at an event. 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".
