Sandra Bullock Speaks on Jesse James Split, Feeling "Permanently Broken"

by at . Comments

Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close star Sandra Bullock is finally opening up about the pain caused by Jesse James, whose infidelity ended their marriage early last year.

The 47-year-old Oscar winner admitted in a new interview that she thought she'd never return to acting following the debacle, believing she was “permanently broken.”

"I was perfectly content to be permanently broken," Bullock said of the 2010 scandal, which started with revelations that James bedded Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.

The news of his rampant infidelity broke just days after Sandra Bullock won Best Actress for The Blind Side and gushed about James in her acceptance speech.

Bullock told the AP that eventually, director Stephen Daldry lured her back to set with a starring role, opposite Tom Hanks, in Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close.

"I didn't think I was in a place where I wanted to work or step out of where I was. I wasn't prepared. But the opportunity was louder than my head," she said.

Fortunately for her, and fans everywhere, she is no longer broken. In fact, she's in a better place professionally and personally, as a wonderful mom to Louis Bardot.

I think Jesse James not only made one mistake but a lot of mistakes during hia marriage to Sandra. Now I don't think its forgivable by anyone's standard because he kept on repeating the same mistake over and over. It means there's something inherently wrong with him and should see a professional. In my opinion what man can afford to cheat on a beautiful accomplished woman like Sandra. ?

SANDRA, IT WAS YOUR OWN FAULT. WITH SO MUCH GOING FOR YOU, WHY WOULD YOU GET INVOLVED WITH A LOW LIFE PIECE OF GARBAGE, LIKE JAMES? THERE ARE COOLER LOOKING "BAD BOYS" AROUND.

Her mistake was even getting involved with this loser with an ex wife porn star. No clue what she was thinking.
