Disgraced reality star Jesse James teared up during a U.S. TV interview when he came clean about cheating on actress Sandra Bullock, admitting he “threw away” an “amazing life”.
The TV mechanic was dumped by Bullock in March after news of his infidelities hit the headlines, and the Hollywood star recently filed for divorce.
James has now opened up to news show Nightline in his first TV interview since the scandal broke, in which he acknowledges how badly he screwed up.
He tells reporter Vicki Mabrey, “(I) took a pretty amazing life and amazing success and marriage… and threw it away by my own hands.”
At one point in the emotional chat, he even asks to “take a break for a second” to compose himself.
James also uses the interview to apologise to Bullock once more, and when asked if he’s “the most hated man in America” for cheating on “America’s sweetheart”, he laughs, “I think (I’m) the ‘most hated man in the world’, now.
The TV tough guy originally apologised to his estranged wife after tattooed model Michelle ‘Bombshell’ McGee sold her story of their affair to the tabloids in March.
Addressing the affair allegations in a statement, James said, “There is only one person to blame for this whole situation, and that is me… This has caused my wife and kids pain and embarrassment beyond comprehension and I am extremely saddened to have brought this on them. I am truly very sorry for the grief I have caused them. I hope one day they can find it in their hearts to forgive me.”
Bullock went public with her thoughts and feelings about her marriage breakdown in a People magazine expose last month, while revealing the couple had adopted a baby boy named Louis from New Orleans, Louisiana.
The full Nightline interview is set to air in the U.S. on Tuesday (25May10). Insiders claim he will also open up about his recent stint in rehab and the adoption of little Louis.
