Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has compared the Welsh winger to the Real Madrid superstar after an incredible run of goalscoring form - his latest the match-winner against West Ham on Monday night.
But Bale has insisted he's a different kind of player to the former-Manchester United forward.
Speaking to Sport magazine, Bale said: "I don't model my game on his, because I have my own way of playing and it's not exactly the same.
"I think anybody would love to be mentioned alongside the best in the world. It's flattering, but I don't really look too much into it.
"I don't get the newspaper or read too many reports, so I don't really know how much hype there is.
"Obviously my friends tell me things, but I just treat every day as normal and focus on my job."
The Wales international has hit a purple patch of form - scoring eight goals in his last six games - but he's been consistently excellent this term.
And Spurs have reaped the benefits. Under the guidance of Andre Villas-Boas Tottenham sit in third place, four points clear of north London rivals Arsenal.
And the two foes clash on Sunday in what could be a pivotal encounter in the race for the top four.
Arsenal won the previous fixture between the sides 5-2 at the Emirates Stadium, but will go into the tie at White Hart Lane needing to get three points to keep pace with Villas-Boas's squad.
