Margot Robbie squirmed in her chair at the audience’s greeting to her being punched in the face by actor Sebastian Stan in “I, Tonya.”
The singer — who constructed the film formed on Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding’s life — was worried as she watched her film at the Toronto International Film festival, she removed to Us Weekly.
“There was a quite bad, violent moment where Jeff [Gillooly, Harding’s husband] punches Tonya in the face, and it’s one of the few times where she doesn’t mangle the fourth wall to let the assembly know that she’s fine,” she explained.
“The assembly had such a outspoken greeting to it, and we thought, ‘Wow, there’s no way they’ll ever pardon Jeff after this moment.’ But only a few mins after he has a honeyed moment [WITH TONYA], and the whole assembly went, ‘Awww,’ like they suspicion he was the sweetest man ever. And we thought, ‘My God! You guys forgave him so quickly!'”
