What a month it's been for Sandra Bullock, 45, who won an Oscar on March 7 and reportedly learned days later that her spouse of five years, Jesse James, was a serial cheater. Now, after her vilified husband has entered (and quit) rehab, and with a seige of paparazzi invading her privacy, the actress everyone's waiting to hear from is finally commenting on the scandal.
"There is no sex tape," Bullock said today in a statement to People.com, addressing online rumors about a racy video of her with her estranged husband. "There never has been one and there never will be one."
It's a mystery why the veil of silence on Bullock's part is suddenly being lifted to address this particular topic. A source has told RadarOnline.com that the actress harbors concerns about James' erratic behavior and is determined to protect her privacy if she decides to proceed with a divorce.
But for women everywhere who sympathize with Bullock as a wife who thought her partner was trustworthy, the last five words of her first public statement -- "there never will be one" -- certainly seem easy to interpret: Bullock seems 100 percent resolute about never reconciling with the man she thought of as her Mr. Right, but who may have been Mr. Wrong all along.
Are you surprised Sandra Bullock hasn't spoken out more about her husband's infidelity? Chime in below!
