Jesse James tells 'Nightline': 'I think I wanted to get caught'

May 24, 2010 |  2:48 pm

You say you're slightly interested in hearing what Jesse James has to say for himself, but not enough to stay up past 11:35 p.m.? (Hey, there's no judging here.)

As we told you last week, James will break his silence for the first time since his marriage to Oscar-winning actress Sandra Bullock became tabloid fodder in an interview airing Tuesday on ABC's "Nightline." 

"Nightline's" Vicki Mabrey appeared on "Good Morning America" Monday morning and revealed more footage from her much talked about interview with Bullock’s soon-to-be-ex-husband.

In the preview, James says he still has feelings for the actress: “I still really love her and care about her.”  And he says he's not surprised his indiscretions became public: “I knew I would get caught eventually and I think I wanted to get caught.” 

Check it out for yourself:

Hmmm. What do you think of the clip?  Will you tune in Tuesday? Let us know what you think in the comments.
