Jesse James on 'Good Morning America': 'I can't worry about Sandra Bullock anymore.'

Promoting his new book, American Outlaw, Sandra Bullock’s ex-husband Jesse James was on Good Morning America this morning, in clips from a taped interview with Vicki Mabrey that will air tonight on Nightline. Though he’s hard on himself, he also admits that “I can’t worry about [Bullock] anymore. I think I’ve spent a good chunk of the last five or six years worrying only about her and what she thinks and what I should do and, like, you know, controlling all my movements and everything else. I think it’s time to worry about Jesse and making sure Jesse’s happy.”

James was crucified publicly for cheating on his famous wife, right after she’d won the Oscar for The Blind Side, so it will be interesting to see how people will react to his now saying that his devotion to his ex “controlled [his] movements and everything else” while he was simultaneously undermining their marriage.

James claims he didn’t write the book to make himself look better, and he’ll have to confront questions about his decision to include the details of how he confessed his adulterous affairs to Bullock. James doesn’t criticize her in the book; Mabrey said this morning that “She remains America’s Sweetheart.” But does James have license to publicize that deeply personal, deeply painful moment — for profit — after what he did?

American Outlaw may be part of James’ cathartic recovery, but how do you think his book will effect his public reputation?

    • Ally

      I know right..he’s disgusting.

      • David

        Why is EW mentioning good morning america when CLEARLY the interview he did on Howard Stern was 100x better and more revealing…

    • Le HIROSHI

      The man came out like he still didn’t realize it was his fault.

    • Shellibelli

      whata creep, he clearly has not gotten over Sandra and is now int he love/hate phase, he cant ever have her again or the feling he had when he did – so now he is on Howard Stern saying how his curretn ho is way better in bed than Sandra ever was.

      Well if thats the case so be it, Sandra and he had real love. Kat doesnt look like she can love anything but her self. and she looks well used.
      a type that he seems to prefer.

    @ meme – Took the words right out of my mouth.

  • yesyousuck

    What a total asshat!

  • Katie

    Eeew seriously. I need to shower after reading that quote.

  • Erin Karel

    ass hole…

  • Cindee

    I say shame on the book publisher who printed it. He is a piece of work and it would have looked better if he had kept his mouth shut!

  • Khoff

    I’m sure he was really concerned about what makes Sandra happy while he was screwing Bombshell Mcgee. What makes Jesse happy had nothing to do with that, i’m sure.

  • Laura

    He is such an unbelievable sleaze.
    “I think it’s time to worry about Jesse and making sure Jesse’s happy.” Yeah… pretty sure that’s what you were doing when you were sleeping with other women. Dirtbag.

  • sally

    what a sad excuse for a man. seriously, go away.

  • brynna

    This Jackass needs to fade away into oblivion. Anything he’s saying to make himself look good is just a crap load of lies.

  • jenn

    What a revolting individual. Wow…it’s been a whole year now since he completely betrayed her. Of course he thinks he needs to worry about what he needs and wants. He never worried about anything else.
    Get ready, Kat…it’s only a matter of time.

  • Ruby

    Classic serial cheater comment. Basically he’s saying he never felt good enough for her (well you were right, you weren’t) so he was always “on” trying desperately not to be the dirtbag he really is and failed miserably. Boo hoo, poor Jesse…he married someone ten times better than him and couldn’t handle the self esteem issues. World’s smallest violin for you.

    • Otto Von Mantaufelt

      World’s smallest violin….Funny!.

  • Juneau

    Ah – the old “she MADE me cheat on her” routine. Don’t think that’s going to work, Jesse. Hope your next wife cheats on you.

    • Nighthawk969

      Next Wife???? After all this, who would be that stupid???

      • rosie

        Another tatooed ho like his first wife would be that stupid.
