Poor Sandra Bullock. While the 46-year-old actress has moved on from her messy split from 42-year-old Jesse James -- she's got an Oscar on her mantel and a beautiful adopted son, 16-month-old Louis, in her life -- Bullock's Monster Garage star ex-husband seems intent on talking about it forever.
James, now engaged to L.A. Ink star Kat Von D, stopped by The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday to promote his new memoir American Outlaw -- and, apparently, to rub more salt in Sandra's wounds by saying that Von D is "100 percent" better in bed than Bullock.
The quote came when Stern asked James who has more buidoir prowess. James said, "That one's an easy no-brainer." When Stern beat James to the punch and predicted he was going to say Kat Von D, Jess replied, "Yes, sir. 100 percent." He then added: "She's a vixen, man... The way she gets in my head. It's a mental thing. (We're) connected on a whole different level." What's more, James said he he'd even give Von D a free pass if she's unfaithful: "If she cheated on me, I'd forgive her and still love her."
While James recently has tried to show the media a softer, more self-aware side than the compulsive cheater we got to know in 2010, his comments on the Howard Stern Show illustrate that he may not have grown quite as much as we thought. Still, James seems determined to show the world he is on the right track, and that he simply can't "spot any flaws" in Kat Von D.
James tells People that Kat "fell in love with me when I was being called Satan. If that's not a testament to what kind of a person she is and where her intentions are, I think nothing is."
James recently closed up his motorcycle shop in Los Angeles and, along with his three children -- Chandler, Jesse Jr. and Sunny -- moved to Austin, Tex., where Bullock resides. His hope was that Sandra and his kids would retain some sort of relationship (he says the haven't) and that he would be able to see Louis, who he and Bullock had intended to raise together. Kat Von D, meanwhile, still lives in Los Angeles, but James isn't letting that get him down. When asked about the long-distance relationship, James replies, "What would you rather have -- a perfect partner and be logistically challenged or a half-assed partner who lives next door?"
