Travolta sees mob wife for film tip

John Travolta has visited the widow of mob boss John Gotti to research his new film role as the mafia kingpin.

John arrived at the Gotti home in New York City to meet widow Victoria Gotti, her son John Junior Gotti and other key players, the New York Post reports.

The Post said the Pulp Fiction star was greeted with handshakes and hugs. He brought a gift bag for Victoria Gotti and stayed inside for more than two hours.

All he would say when he emerged was that he was doing research for the film.

John Gotti died in prison in 2002.

The film Gotti: In The Shadow Of My Father is set to start shooting in January. Barry Levinson is directing.
