Apparently, Margot Robbie wants to learn another sport. A year after she starred in the Tonya Harding biopic, “I, Tonya”, the Academy Award-nominated actress is interested in playing Jan Stephenson. At least, according to Stephenson.
“We’ve talked about doing a movie; Margot Robbie wants to play me,” Stephenson said.
OK, so that’s not a lot of detail, but it would make sense for several reasons. For one, Stephenson is deserving of the biopic treatment – ESPN already did a short documentary on her in 2014 — after a career in which she won three LPGA Majors while (proudly) gaining notoriety as a sex symbol. Secondly, they’re both blonde beauties from Australia. And third, did you see Margot Robbie skate in the brilliant “I, Tonya”?! Learning how to swing like a pro golfer would be a piece of cake after that performance.
Anyway, let’s hope this happens.
