Jesse James claims he lost himself married to Sandra Bullock
The mechanic returned to reality TV on Monday night with Discovery channel's auto-centric "American Chopper: The Build-Off," and mentioned the implosion of his personal life, sparking in 2010.
"I became a big shot and married some Hollywood actress and didn’t talk to anybody anymore, so I feel bad," he said in a testimonial, "...I feel obligated to reconnect with all these people and show 'em that I'm still the same fabricator motorcycle guy. I'm not what I became."
And what became of Jesse? In 2010, Bullock cleaned up in award trophies for her turn in "The Blind Side," only to cap a lead actress Oscar win with the discovery of infidelities on James' part — led by the charming Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.
