London: Katie Price’s husband Alex Reid has compared himself to legend star Robert De Niro.

The cage fighter claims to be the new De Niro, as he was slated for his role in Killer Bitch, in which he acted out a rape scene.

“I just wish that people would realise that scene is a love scene,” the Daily Star quoted him as telling Star magazine.

“I mean, Robert De Niro does love scenes and no-one brands him a pervert.”
