I am sure the fact that Alina Z. is absolutely breathtaking to look at didn't hurt her chances to get a movie role.
I am sure all the injustice, hate and belittling that was done to her during the first 6-7 months after she won the Olympics, by parties interested and financially invested in "another girl winning", this movie role, and much more that will come her way this season, is just a small compensation of all she deserved during 1st season of being an Olympic Champion that was taken away from her.
If Kwan, Family and Co. ever "did" to Sarah Hughes to keep her off TV and out of equivalent of "Kellogg's Wheaties" for winning gold, compared to what was done to Zagitova in Russia and what was done to spread the negativity outside, there would be a major investigation of bribery, kick-backs and major corruption taking place immediately.
(it's all to come out eventually, i am sure. but there is an old rule - best punishment to offenders is success).
