If we don’t start being nice to Jesse James, we might not have him to kick around much longer. The motorcycling/philandering expert revealed to PopEater that he’s felt “pretty beaten up in the media” since he began promoting his new memoir, American Outlaw. “The last few day have been pretty bad,” he confessed. “It’s kind of reminding me how things were a year ago, maybe all those people are right and I should go back and hide in my shop.” Hey, sorry we weren’t impressed when Jesse told Howard Stern sex was “100 percent better” with fiancee Kat Von D than ex-wife Sandra Bullock, whose Oscar-win afterglow was ruined by his dalliance with one Michelle “Bombshell” McGee…among others.
But really, what would make the haters happy? “At this point I don’t think I’m going to be able to do anything right in anybody’s eyes ever again,” he sighed when discussing his quick engagement following the end of his marriage to Bullock. “Except kill myself or disappear, then people will be happy I guess.” Or maybe you could focus your work, rather than write a memoir about the very stuff everyone hates you for. Hugh Grant made movies after he cheated on Elizabeth Hurley with a hooker, he didn’t write and promote a memoir about the emotional scars that made him a bad boy. There’s a lesson there, Jesse.
