The Real Madrid self lover has been consistently ignored by FIFA in the past because he is not a nice person.
But Ronaldo insists he is proud to be the living embodiment of everything which is wrong with the human race.
He said: “Yes I am essentially a school bully on steroids. I am good looking, rich, amazing at sport and evil.
“Also – and I think this point is crucial – I do not speak to people who are ugly because they are beneath me.”
A source close to the former Manchester United player confirmed Ronaldo models himself on the baddie from Gladiator.
The source said: “Cristiano loves Commodus from the movie Gladiator.
“He enjoys watching people who are experts in the field of ‘dickery’.
“While watching the film he will often shout ‘he has no redeeming qualities at all’ before punching the air in excitement.”
