Jesse James Interview: No Contact with Sandra Bullock

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- It was only a year ago that Jesse James seemed like the most hated man in America after an affair not only cost him his marriage to Sandra Bullock, but also the baby the couple had spent years waiting to adopt.

"I think, you know, a marriage ending, all this crazy stuff...that was like a lesson to work on myself and fix what's wrong with me," James told ABC’s Vicki Mabrey in an exclusive network interview. "So I don't transfer it and keep it going, like my parents did."

Now after closing up his motorcycle shop in California, the 42-year-old has started a new life at his home on 15 acres in the countryside near Austin, Texas.

While Bullock also has a home in Austin, James said the two of them don't have any contact and he doesn't get to see Louie, the son that Bullock ended up adopting as a single parent.

"I don't want to try to second guess what she thinks or something like that," he said. "I mean, I know why I moved…I moved initially so the kids could keep a relationship and I could kind of keep a relationship with Louie, and then whatever else happened besides that. But I mostly moved to, for me. To get out of California."

James said his daughter Sunny has seen Bullock only a few times, but that there has been "no contact at all for several months."

"You know, the painful stuff, like with Louie," he said. "I could only cry so much about him until I have to, like, suck it up and keep a stiff upper lip, and realize, hey, I have three kids that I do have."

Stalked incessantly by paparazzi at his Long Beach, Calif., home last year, James entered a 30-day stint at the Sierra Tucson treatment center in Arizona where he said he dealt with childhood and anger management issues.

Watch the interview with Jesse James Wednesday on ABC's Good Morning America, with more airing later on Nightline at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT.

Lily Collins Cast as Snow White; Julia Roberts to Play Evil Queen

Charley Gallay/Getty Images For Teen Vogue(LOS ANGELES) -- Actress Lily Collins, best known for playing Sandra Bullock's daughter in The Blind Side, has been cast as Tarsem Singh's Snow White in the upcoming film opposite Julia Roberts, who will be playing the Evil Queen.

"Snow White was my favorite fairy tale [growing up], and when I first read about the project, I was like, 'I have to get in on this. It's such an iconic character," the 22-year-old actress tells People.

Collins' role in The Brothers Grimm: Snow White by Relativity Media, should not be confused with Universal's competing project, Snow White and the Huntsman, starring Kristen Stewart and Charlize Theron.

Collins is the daughter of musician Phil Collins and will be filming The Mortal Instruments before taking on the role of the classic Disney princess.

Sandra Bullock Gives $1 Million to Japan Earthquake Victims

John Shearer/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Sandra Bullock stepped up to do what no celebrity has done in the wake of the 9.0 earthquake that rocked Japan last week: she donated a significant sum of money to relief efforts.

Thursday, the American Red Cross told ABC News that this week, the Oscar-winning Blind Side actress donated $1 million to those affected by the earthquake and subsequent tsunami. The Red Cross confirmed that Bullock's is the largest celebrity donation it has received since the disaster.

Bullock -- who reportedly made $56 million between June 2009 and June 2010 -- has shelled out for relief efforts in the past. She donated $1 million following Haiti's massive earthquake and has been a vocal proponent of rebuilding the areas of New Orleans affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Many stars have used Twitter to encourage fans to donate to the Red Cross and other clean up organizations. Some have gone further. On Tuesday, Saturday Night Live alum Kevin Nealon hosted a benefit comedy show at Hollywood, Calif.'s Laugh Factory. All ticket sales went to the Red Cross.

On his website, Charlie Sheen, the pop culture sensation of the moment, announced that he will donate $1 from each ticket of his upcoming live show, My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat Is Not an Option, to the Red Cross' fund for relief. Tickets to his Chicago and Detroit shows, which range from $35 to $75, reportedly sold out within minutes.

Last week, Lady Gaga announced she's selling a self-designed "We Pray for Japan" wristband on her website; all proceeds from the $5 band will go to Japan relief efforts.

More Jesse James Nazi Photos Surface

Photo Courtesy - Jordan Strauss/ WireImage/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Remember the scandal that erupted when Jesse James was caught posing in Nazi paraphernalia?  Well, a new one may be brewing.

Us Weekly has new Nazi-themed photos featuring Sandra Bullock's ex-husband.  The shots were posted on Facebook by former employees of James' company, West Coast Choppers.

In one picture, James is in a car while a friend sits in the passenger seat, delivering the Nazi salute while wearing what appears to be an Nazi officer's hat.  Another photo features a paper cutout of the pro-literacy cartoon character Flat Stanley, colored so that he's dressed as Hitler.  The cutout is being held by someone, apparently male, though it's impossible to tell if it's James.

The pictures were posted on Facebook in October, although it's unclear if they're still on the social networking site.

An insider maintains James is not an anti-Semite, adding, "He's into history.  The swastika deal is to scare people.  It's part of biker culture."

Sandra Bullock's Ex Now Engaged to Tattoo Artist Kat Von D

Photo Courtesy - Jordan Strauss/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Jesse James, Sandra Bullock's former husband, is now engaged to tattoo artist Kat Von D, People magazine reports.  

In a statement to People, James says, "You know, sometimes the public and press gets it wrong. This is one of those times. 2010 was actually the best year of my life because I fell in love with my best friend. An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs." James adds, "I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day. My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said 'yes.' Growing old with her is going to be a bleepin' blast!"

James and Von D have been dating since last summer -- his divorce from Bullock was finalized last June.  Their marriage initially collapsed when it came to light in March of 2010 that James had cheated on Bullock with several women.  He issued a statement of apology to Bullock, and entered rehab March 30 to "save his marriage."  She filed for divorce in April.

Are Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock an Item?

Photo Courtesy - John Shearer/ WireImage/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Could Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds be the hot new couple of 2011?  The two, who worked together in The Proposal, have been spending lots of time together, reports PopEater.com.

Bullock divorced Jesse James last year, while Reynolds split with soon-to-be ex-wife Scarlett Johansson just a few weeks ago.

A friend of Reynolds says, "Sandra loves Ryan.  They became very good friends when they filmed The Proposal, but they are not a couple, at least not yet."  Another source said, "They are both newly single and leaning on each other for support.  Who knows what will happen in the future, but any rumors of them being together and splitting up Ryan's marriage to Scarlett are false.  Sandra would never get involved with a married man after what her ex did to her."

Reynolds and Bullock are such good friends, in fact, that they rang in 2011 together at Bullock's home in Texas with some other pals.  Still, a source tells E! Online there may be some sparks between the two, noting, "They sat next to each other and were holding hands at one point.  They were very cute together."

Bullock's rep insists there's nothing romantic going on between her and Reynolds.  The rep tells People magazine that Bullock and Reynolds joined a few others to celebrate New Year's Eve at her restaurant in Austin, Texas.  The rep adds, "They all had a great time ringing in the New Year as they have in the past...as nothing more than friends."
