Los Angeles, Feb 22 (IANS) Actress Margot Robbie found playing Tonya Harding "liberating" because she had taken on some of her "unapologetic" traits.Robbie, 27, plays the disgraced American Olympic figure skater in a new biopic "I, Tonya", which has also earned her a Best Actress nomination at the upcoming Oscars.Robbie admits that Harding is a controversial person but there are aspects of her personality which she admires, reports femalefirst.co.uk.Speaking to Stylist magazine, Robbie said: "The fact that we are even going to the Oscars with this film is like ‘Tonya Harding going to the Olympics'. I feel like people are going to say, 'How did you riff-raff get into this prestigious event?'""It's symbolic of Tonya's journey and being like, 'F**k it. I'm here. Take it or leave it.' What made people find Tonya abrasive was that she was unapologetic for who she was. That's why playing her was so liberating. I'm constantly apologising. I hate that about myself," she added.--IANSks/nn/bg
