Boston Globe sports columnist Dan Shaughnessy was curious what Nancy Kerrigan thinks about the movie “I, Tonya,” so he looked her up in the phone book and gave her a call.
And Kerrigan, a Stoneham native, picked up on the first try, Shaughnessy wrote in a Thursday column.
Did she want to comment on the movie?
“Not right now,” Kerrigan told Shaugnessy. “I really have nothing to say about it. I haven’t seen it. I haven’t watched anything.
“I’ve been busy. 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.”
What about Tonya Harding, who’s on what’s been described as a redemption tour? Shaughnessy writes:
What about Tonya, I wondered. Is Nancy bothered by Hollywood’s portrayal of Tonya? Any comment?
“I don’t know,’’ said Kerrigan. “At this point, 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 is weird, that’s for sure. A bizarre thing. The whole thing was crazy, being that it’s a story. I mean, come on.’’
