I didn’t hand pick LiLo to play me in mob biopic, says Victoria Gotti
New York: Mobster John Gotti`s daughter, Victoria, has reportedly dismissed claims that she ‘hand picked’ Lindsay Lohan to play her in an upcoming Gotti biopic starring John Travolta and Joe Pesci.
At her son Frankie Gotti`s 21st birthday party at Greenhouse, Victoria told guests, "Though it was said that I insisted she play my part, that`s not true. I didn`t insist and actually have no say in who gets the part."
"I think Lindsay is a very talented actress and a sweet girl," the New York Post quoted her as saying.
Lohan has not officially been cast in the role, but a rep for the project said producers are "extremely interested" in her and that she made "an extremely good impression on everyone involved with the film."
The rep added that Gotti family members are acting as consultants on the flick but are not in charge of casting.
