Wow, did Victoria Gotti actually handpick Lindsay Lohan to play her in a movie about her father, JohnÂ Gotti…Yes according to TMZ. Victoria passed over Blake Lively and Sienna Miller for Lindsay Lohan!!
Lindsay Lohan beat out Blake Lively AND Sienna Miller for her new role as Victoria Gotti — and TMZ has learned … Victoria herself made sure that happened.
Sources close to the production tell TMZ, producers were considering both Blake and Sienna for the role — but John Gotti’s famously blonde daughter wasn’t having it, insisting Lindsay get the role instead … and producers loved the idea.
Not all that surprising — according to sources, Victoria is a good friend of the Lohan family … and she often spends time with them on Long Island.
Meanwhile, Lindsay is currently in L.A. auditioning for “Superman” — but we’re told she already has a plane ticket back to NYC for April 12th … to close the Gotti deal for good.
Even though Blake and Sienna would probably do great as Victoria Gotti… Lindsay has that in the bag, she just has more natural edge than the other two ladies. Plus it doesn’t hurt that the Lohans and Gottis are friends.
