The Oscar-winning actress has pulled out of the London premiere of her flick The Blind Side not-so-coincidentally in the wake of an In Touch story in which pinup model Michelle McGee claims she carried on an 11-month affair with Bullock’s husband Jesse James.
Michelle claims she and Jesse met when she contacted the Monster Garage star about modeling for his business. She says he made it clear from their first meeting that their relationship would not be about business.
“He started saying, Do you want to hang out?” Michelle claims. “I got there around 9 at night.”
Michelle says he brought her into his office and locked the door.
“We ended up on the couch,” she said. “He wanted to watch movies, but I asked him, What’s going on with you and Sandra?” Michelle claims Jesse hinted at a separation. He said “She doesn’t live here. She has a house in Austin. She is filming, and I can’t talk about it.”
“I would never have hooked up with him if I thought he was a married man,” Michelle claimed. “He gave me the impression they were separated.”
The tattooed model says she and James had sex two or three times the first night and continued to meet up at least once a week since April 2009. She even gave him a special nickname: Vanilla Gorilla because, she claims, he is so well-endowed. Ick. Nasty.
Is any of this true? Only Jesse knows for sure, but in what can only be called suspicious timing Bullock has pulled out of the London premiere of The Blindside at the last minute. In a statement issued through Warner Brothers, Bullock said, “Due to unforeseen personal reasons a trip abroad to support The Blind Side has been deemed impossible at this time. I apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and thank you for your continued support of the film.”
If the rumors are true, Bullock would become the most recent victim of the Best Actress Oscar curse. Six of the seven married/seriously attached winners (including possibly Sandra) of the award in the last decade have seen their relationships end after their achievements: Kate Winslet, Reese Witherspoon, Charlize Theron (unmarried but with partner Stewart Townsend for seven years), Halle Berry, Julia Roberts (also in a long-term relationship), and now possibly Bullock.
James’ bad boy image may be what attracted Sandra to him in the first place, but she may be learning that this is one species of man you can’t domesticate. While one may wonder what woman could possibly top the beautiful, talented, funny and smart Bullock, keep in mind James used to be married to a drug-addled porn star.
