Jesse James says his estranged wife, Sandra Bullock, suspected that he may have strayed from their marriage before the widespread reports regarding his alleged affairs were published. In his interview with ABC's Nightline that aired Tuesday, James said, "I think she's had her suspicions in the past, but, you know, I lied, and lied my way out of it."
Once James apologized publicly to Bullock and decided to enter a rehab facility in Arizona in March, he says she was supportive of him to some extent. James says Bullock was "proud" of him for taking a step in the right direction. Bullock filed for divorce in April.
The Oscar-winner's recent People magazine cover photo, in which she's holding their adopted three-and-a-half-month-old baby LOUIS, was another wake-up call for James. He says it made him "sad" to see the two on the cover without him. James praises Bullock as a wonderful mother, saying, "She is like a fish to water."
James also acknowledged to Nightline that a leaked picture of him wearing a Nazi cap was an error in judgment. He adamantly denies that the photo, which was taken before he married Bullock, is an indication that he's racist. He says, "I could tell by the look on my face it was a joke that was funny then, probably for a minute, but then looking at it in the context of now and in my life, it's not funny."
He's a pig. Liar too. He says he wanted to get caught cheating but then denies it when Sandy suspects it? Jerkface.
