US cop turned 'cannibal' because of Cameron Diaz in 'The Mask'

Cameron Diaz

A New York City cop accused of plotting to kidnap, rape, cook and eat several women - said that he's "experienced erotic arousal when imagining women being kidnapped and bound by others," since he saw Cameron Diaz's in her debut film 'The Mask.'

That "pattern of arousal appears to have originated with a scene in the movie, 'The Mask,' in which Diaz pretends to be abducted and bound," the New York Post quoted Gilberto Valle's defence lawyers as saying.

And while the 29-year-old police officer discovered Internet porn in high school "and was particularly interested in bondage websites," the Manhattan federal court filing said that his taste for cannibalism didn't develop until he started college, when he found some porn DVDs that belonged to one of his roommates.

Public defenders Julia Gatto and Edward Zas wrote that it was this discovery that led Valle to darker fetish Web sites, including 'Muki's Kitchen,' which was his gateway into cannibalism pornography.
