Sean Penn
 was born to play famed gangster Mickey Cohen in "Gangster Squad" -- so says one of Cohen's famously well-endowed ex-girlfriends, who tells TMZ, Penn and Cohen have more in common than you might think.

84-year-old Tempest Storm -- one of L.A.'s most famous burlesque dancers -- dated Cohen back in the late 1950s ... and according to her, producers nailed it when they picked Penn to fill Cohen's shoes in the film.

Tempest -- who reportedly got her breasts insured for $1 million during her career -- tells TMZ, "Behind the rough exterior, Mickey was a nice guy ... and Sean Penn seems the same way."

She adds, "I like Sean Penn and think they got someone with a good amount of street experience to play the part."

And now what you've all been waiting for -- an old video of Tempest Storm taking her clothes off.

My siblings and I grew up knowing who Tempest Storm was. The story goes that she and my paternal grandmother were BFFs for a number of years back in the day, which was kind of weird because my grandmother was a buttoned-up, straight laced army nurse, so go figure. I'm surprised she's still alive.

Sean Penn may be a great actor but he is a crude, selfish, narcissistic pig of a man who treats women horrible.

Man...have times changed, or what? I remember seeing her at the old "Grand" theater in St. Louis, Mo. back in the mid 60's. In fact she was probably in the mid 60's herself.

My mother's name was (Mildred) Mickey Cohen and she was a teenager in NY when Mr. Cohen was making headlines. She was teased constantly. Now it's odd to see her name as a movie character.
