According to Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband, Jesse James, he doesn’t miss being married to the Oscar-winning actress.
Seven years after countless women came forward to share that James, 47, had affairs with them, the West Coast Choppers owner has opened up about his marriage to Bullock. He discusses their time together, admits to cheating and has no regrets.
The pair ended their marriage in 2010 and James admits it was his fault. “Yeah, I did cheat on my wife,” Jesse, 47, tells The Daily Mail. “Yeah, I stood up and took accountability for it and apologized. And that’s end of story. Everything else was just…The easy potshot is like, ‘Oh, well you cheated on Sandra Bullock.’ That’s the world’s easiest comeback,” he said.
He went on to suggest that cheating is only natural. “In general, both women and men cheat,” he added. “It’s part of life.”
After Michelle “Bombshell” McGee and the other women discussed his indiscretions in the tabloids, James felt vilified. “It’s like people love to see you fall. And the farther you get, the higher you get, the more they love it,” he said.
“I look at myself now and I look at how I was feeling then, and I think I was completely overreacting as far as letting it really get to me. I think it was having 50 or 60 or paparazzi outside my house for five or six months,” James continued, admitting he did not like that feeling.
James says he’s a fighter, though. “I come from the tradition of if you do something I don’t like, I’m going to punch you. There’s no lawsuits – nothing. We’re just going to fight it out,” the former host of the reality show “Monster Garage” said. “It’s hard for me to bite my cheeks and not say anything and just look down.”
