Considine: 'I'm No Robert De Niro'

Rising British actor PADDY CONSIDINE is bemused at suggestions he's the next ROBERT DE NIRO, insisting his film idol is better than he will ever be. The actor dazzled critics with his performance in British revenge thriller DEAD MAN SHOES - and many hailed the star in the same breath as Hollywood icon De Niro. But Considine, who is starring in the forthcoming BOURNE sequel BOURNE ULTIMATUM, certainly doesn't believe his own hype. He says, "It's a load of b**locks isn't it?. I mean even if someone called me the British De Niro, it's still too much. But for some people to say I'm as good as my idol, no, I don't think so."
