Lindsay Lohan

HANDPICKED

By Victoria Gotti

4/8/2011 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

It's like the old saying goes, Harlott: If you're really IN the Mob, you NEVER admit it.

Yes, this comment is really (not) about Lindsay getting her "happy" back:

She tells Britain's Daily Mail, "They party too much, don't learn their lines, are unprofessional and they grumble about everything. I think they are terribly ungrateful. I cannot stand the people who get wonderful starts in show business, and who abuse it. Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen, for example, although there are plenty of others, too. They are the most blessed people in the world and they don't appreciate it...

"HANDPICKED" is the quote as the photo of Lindsay shows her picking lice out of her hair like a reeces monkey.

So who was it that told TMZ to post this "story"? Michael or Dina. We ALL know just how infatuated with the Lohan family the TMZ staff is. According to "What Would Tyler Durden Do?" (www.wwtdd.com) there isn't even a Gotti film in the works. Also, she isn't even auditioning for "Superman" either.

Great way to go about losing credibility Harvey and TMZ! Allowing yourselves to be roped into being the personal mouthpieces of the Lying Lohan's. For shame!

After her arrests and subsequent rehabilitations, Lohan's Q again fell in 2007. With 74% familiarity, she had a positive rating of 11 and a negative rating of 43. Her wishy-washy relationship with Samantha Ronson (as well as her flip-slop stance on going gay), coupled with her nude photo shoot in New York magazine (for which she was not compensated and was uniformly derided), increased her familiarity to 80% in 2008. Her positive rating remained an 11, while her negative rating shot up to a 52.

This year, 84% of Americans polled were familiar with Lindsay. Her positive rating has reached a low of 9, and her negative rating hovers at 52. Five times more people dislike Lindsay than are rooting for her.

You could argue that getting those nine Lindsay Lohan fans, out of every 100 possible moviegoers, is still better than getting zero people into a theater. The problem with Lindsay is how negatively so many people feel about her. For every nine people who will see that movie, 52 out of 100 people will be so turned off by her presence that they may choose not to see it.

The people have spoken and what they are saying is that Lindsay is a bad investment.

I will avoid this film like the plague, and anything else stamped by this untalented wreck of a human toilet bowl.

LMAO that you think your letter or a letter of the handful of regular haters here are going to affect a movie. ROFL

Maybe that won't but I'm pretty sure a -53 Q-rating might make someone pause.

I use "hater" as loosely as you do, Tiny. So yeah, according to YOUR standards, Betty White's a Lindsay "hater."

After all, Lindsay and Charlie:

"party too much, don't learn their lines, are unprofessional"

"grumble about everything."

"are terribly ungrateful."

And Betty:

"cannot stand the people who get wonderful starts in show business, and who abuse it."
___________

"HATER!"

Bubbles! Ironic that I got my alias banned for posting on MJ and MJ's chimp got his post deleted while posting on another primate named Lindsay. Weird.

Preach it Betty!

These low life drug addicts take whatever fortune they were lucky enough to get and throw it away with both hands.

Betty White is a class act, who has continued to work and have success because of her TALENT not because she became INFAMOUS.

Big difference, something that Hohan and CHUCKLES will never understand.
