Nancy Kerrigan has not yet seen acclaimed biopic "I, Tonya"  -- and she's not in any rush to, either.

While the Golden Globes were abuzz on Sunday with Allison Janney's Best Supporting Actress win and Tonya Harding's high profile appearance, Kerrigan has simply been getting on with her life.

"Not right now," she told Boston Globe sportswriter Dan Shaughnessy in a report published Thursday when asked if she's seen the movie. "I really have nothing to say about it. I haven't seen anything. 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," she added.

Harding wasn't officially charged in the attack but pleaded guilty to conspiring to hinder the prosecution.

Tonya Harding Would Like Her Apology Now

  Tonya Harding Would Like Her Apology Now In the movie, “I, Tonya,” the disgraced figure skater looks back on the 1994 Nancy Kerrigan scandal and her struggles to tell her side of the story.“I’m going, damn, he’s got beautiful eyes,” she said. “I mean the eyes are the center to your soul, O.K.? You might have a nice butt, but I want to see the eyes.” Within weeks she proposed to him. Within those same weeks she was carrying their baby. She had never met anyone so gentle or kind; she had never known a man to just love her, not for her skating abilities or for what she might potentially become, but for her. They married, and she changed her last name, like lots of people do. O.K., I told her. Tonya Price it is.

Nancy Kerrigan hasn ’ t seen I , Tonya , and she has nothing to say about the movie, which depicts the 1994 attack on the figure skater just weeks before she went on to win a silver medal at the Lillehammer Olympics. “It’ s not really part of my life. As you say, I was the victim .

Harding has made public appearances promoting the film and sat down for a two-hour interview with ABC News set to air Thursday night, but so far, Kerrigan has stayed mum until speaking with Shaughnessy.

Shaughnessy has a long professional relationship with Kerrigan, who is from Stoneham, Massachusetts, having covered her early career and kept her phone number in a "a 20-year-old at-a-glance phone book."

"At this point, it's so much easier and better to just be ... it's not really part of my life," she told him. "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," she added.

Later in the day, Kerrigan's husband/agent, Jerry Solomon called the Boston Globe writer, according to the report, and said, "Our position at this point is to say nothing. When we collectively, or Nancy individually, decide what to do, when we are ready to say something, we will.

"But until that time, we've been very consistent -- and as you can imagine I'm getting calls from everybody under the sun from all around the world -- so just to be consistent we're really not saying anything at this point."

"I, Tonya" is currently in theaters.

ABC will air the special "Truth and Lies: The Tonya Harding Story" at 9 p.m. ET on Jan. 11.
