Love cheat Jesse James is attempting to play down the fact he broke Sandra Bullock's heart and rocked her world by stating many husbands have affairs.
In a new interview with Men's Journal magazine, the TV mechanic is defiant about his infidelity, insisting it's time for the media to give him a break as he plans to wed fiancée Kat Von D.
James tells the publication he was "never 100 per cent" into his marriage to Bullock, adding, "I never shied away from anything I did. I took full responsibility. I cheated on my wife. Guess what? So do millions of other men."
James uses the article to explain his reasons for checking into rehab in the months following his split from the actress, revealing he had an anger management issue he needed to fix.
He adds, "I went in thinking, 'All these people in this place? They are really f**ked up.' I figured out pretty fast I was the f**ked-up one. I realized I was addicted to anger, and it was going to be up to me to straighten my s**t out."
