The Word: Sandra Bullock opens up about life after Jesse James
It’s taken more than three years, but Sandra Bullock is gaining some perspective on the disintegration of her marriage to Jesse James in 2010 after his infidelity came to light.
“We’re all where we’re supposed to be,” Bullock tells Vogue. “I am exactly where I want to be now. You can’t go backward. I’m not going backward. I’m grateful that I’m here, blessed to have what I have. Nobody can be prepared for anything.”
For his part, Jesse James has moved on as well, marrying drag racer Alexis DeJoria in Malibu in March after dating for less than two months, according to Star magazine. DeJoria is the daughter of billionaire Paul Mitchell co-founder John Paul DeJoria, who also helped launch Patron tequila and the House of Blues nightclub chain. “Jesse’s always had a man-crush on John Paul, and what better way to get close to him than to get hitched to his daughter?” a source says. “But this marriage will be his fourth. If I were John Paul — after what Jesse put Sandra through — I’d be warning him up front that when it comes to Alexis, he’s better watch his butt.”
