In the interview, Jesse James discusses his split with Sandra Bullock, the baby they were supposed to adopt together, the infamous Nazi photo and why he is generally such a d-bag.
What was James' excuse for the Nazi pics? It was all a big joke.
James said, "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. There's not a racist bone in my body."
That affair with a white supremacist doesn't count as racism in James' world. In fact, he is so not a racist that he okayed the co-adoption of a black baby with Bullock, his soon-to-be-ex.
"My only prerequisite for adopting a baby: I want the baby that needs us the most. To see her in the role as mother is, like, one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. She is like a fish to water, as soon as she put that baby into her hands, it was automatic and amazing. I found a new trust for her, like I knew she wasn't going to leave and our relationship blossomed."
And that right there is where the d-bag comes out. "I found a new trust for her, like I knew she wasn't going to leave, and our relationship blossomed."
Let's remember that first: Bullock wasn't the one screwing around with ugly trailer trash. Second: James knew she wouldn't leave if she didn't find out so he kept screwing around with ugly trailer trash. And third: This relationship blossoming business happened while he was screwing around with ugly trailer trash.
But at least he knows he was being a d-bag, even if he's not aware he still is one. "I lied to everyone about everything, even to myself," James said.
Super-classy Bullock has kept mum and held her head high, seen walking baby Louis -- whom she is adopting as a single mom -- around his home city of New Orleans where she recently bought a house.
