As his marriage to Sandra Bullock comes crumbling down in light of his alleged affairs, Jesse James gets teary-eyed over his transgressions in a new interview with ABC News. He talks publicly on TV for the first time on the scandal, admitting, “I took a pretty amazing life and amazing success and marriage and threw it away… by my own hands,” he says in the interview, airing on Nightline on Tuesday May 25.
Jesse admits he cheated, and also tells his side of the story, reveals his past and his time in rehab.
“I think I’m the most hated man in the world now,” he jokes darkly. At one point, he asks for a moment to himself as he walks off the set, visibly upset and on the verge of tears.
