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.

If she had hooked up with a producer instead of a gangster, we would be talking about her the way we do Marilyn Monroe as a great beauty, actress, and on and on.

Her stripper "routine" was slow and very boring BUT what a healthy looking woman. Pretty face with a gorgeous body. Those women in the 40's and 50's were such magnificent creatures.

My late maternal grandpa knew Mickey, also knew the sheriff, Biscaluz, and had an honorary cop badge which got him out of tickets.
