Margot Robbie is unrecognizable in first photos as Tonya Harding
As we already know, Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie has no issues with roles requiring elaborate costumes, but her latest on-screen look as the disgraced Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding in the upcoming I, Tonya is simultaneosly subtle and extreme at once.
Robbie was recently photographed in character on the set of the movie in full '90s gear: permed hair, serious bangs and high-waisted jeans. She also appears to be wearing some extra padding. The photos were first published by TMZ.

It looks like they're going for realism. Robbie was also recently spotted on the ice sharpening her own skating skills.

Harding become one of the most infamous figures in sports history after her husband along with some hired thugs attempted to break the leg of Nancy Kerrigan, a rival figure skater, before the 1994 winter Olympics.
I, Tonya is expected to be released in 2018.
