Hear 'Tonya Harding,' the Sufjan Stevens song the biopic turned down

Margot Robbie Shuts Down Marriage Questions

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.

Today, Stevens released a new song that also seems related to the cinema of the moment: that is, the new, a one-off called "Tonya Harding", for which he wrote an in-depth accompanying essay.

Margot Robbie and Tonya Harding posed up a storm together at the Los Angeles premiere of "I, Tonya" on Tuesday night. But even the stars of the film - which tells the life story of former Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding - were star-struck when Harding herself emerged.

Stevens' essay begins: "I've been trying to write a Tonya Harding song since I first saw her skate at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in 1991".

Robbie plays Harding - who was ban from staking after she conspired with her ex-husband and bodyguard [Jeff Gillooly] to break fellow skater Nancy Kerrigan's legs ahead of the 1994 Winter Olympics - in the bio/sport drama.

It comes after an Amber Alert was issued when their mother, Micha Soble, said her four children had disappeared on 13 September. Coltharp and Shaffer, Ray said, started a religion called Knights of the Crystal Blade and have baptized each other and Dinah.

Despite being clubbed in the knee, Kerrigan, 48, eventually recovered and ended up winning a silver medal at the Olympics.

Robbie wasn't alone in her excitement over Harding's appearance. Tonya also had a brief career as a boxer, and is most famous for her bout with former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones (whose sexual harassment suit against Bill Clinton precipitated his impeachment in 1998).

Tonya and Margot met during filming - the skater gave the actress a few tips.

"Tonya Harding's dramatic rise and fall was fiercely followed by the media, and she very quickly became the brunt of jokes, the subject of tabloid headlines and public outcry". 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".
