READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Piers Morgan's hour-long interview with Jesse James airs Friday night – his first prime time interview – at 9pmET/PT, and delves into James' much-discussed break-up with Sandra Bullock, his life growing up and his new book, "American Outlaw." He also talked about getting out of the "pretend" Hollywood life. "I don't know how I survived in there as long as I did," James told Morgan. "You're cool, but the rest of those people? I just can't hang with them."
He also implied Sandra Bullock was just acting in her acceptance speeches praising him:
"She said that same speech at four different awards shows. You saw two of them," said James. "What does she do for a living?"
Morgan: Movie star, actor.
James: Oh, ok, cool.
Morgan: You think it was an act?
James: I think people have to live in that world.
Morgan: Movie star, actor.
James: Oh, ok, cool.
Morgan: You think it was an act?
James: I think people have to live in that world.

Seriously he needs to SHUT HIS TRAP!!!!!!!! NO BODY CARES!!!
To all of you who said "Who cares?"
You all cared enough to read and even comment.
Even worse (in my mind)....you call other people "fake".
Ah, yet another 'you cared enough to read and comment' reply. How distastefully unoriginal. The whole idea of a comment board is that people leave them. Pro or con. I'd prefer he shut his trap as well. But I guess I'm not allowed to say that. Well, it's true – you can not reasonably reach that conclusion without LISTENING to the idiot first.
you are grasping, mac.
This guy Jesse James, has NO CLASS. Was NOT enough for him to cheat. Now he has to diss respect on America's SWEETHEART! What a complete LOSER!!!
Every time Jesse James opens his mouth he shows how much better off Sandra is without him.
She's from Canada!
She was born in Virginia.
She grew up in Northern Virginia and went to the rival high school of my mother. We are all very proud that she is a NOVA girl.
Anne, please get your English straight. Either he "dissed" her or he "disrespected" her. You don't use both words together.
Thanks Sugar, I was thinking the exact same thing haha.
I seem to recall him in the audience of one of those award shows with tears in his eyes. He doesn't act...hmm, maybe he's a sleeze for a living.
The tears could've been real...he was probably feeling sorry for himself...AGAIN.
Poor Jesse. He was so hard done by...Loser...
with all the interesting people you could be interviewing you choose to interview this loser ?
What did you expect from a loser? his Time is up. We all know that, we can only hope CNN realizes this soon. There is just so muchGravol in the world.
Perhaps you are hard of hearing or can't see at your age. Pierce is incredible talented and refreshing to see and hear. He is not Jewish, is this your problem ?????
Jesse James has no sense and he's just trying to get every bit of his 15 mins since they are clearly running out. Find something else better to do with your time besides talking down about your ex. You could really learn something about yourself.
He is being his own antidote. He is believing his own lies and distorted views. Sandra would not have made it this far if she were not the honest and nice person she is. I do not believe she is fake. Jesse does not know what real women iare. Sandra tried to help him and his first wife tried also. I have to hand it to Karla, with out her Jesse would have not made it business wise.
Oh, poor Jesse. You were forced to be around "those people, those fake people, that fake world." Poor you, and your are so amazing because you know the real world and hang out with the people in the shop. Those people are so fake and you were forced in their midst to be "all fancy, because she was fancy..." Ah, poor you. Surrounded by talent and people with class and so unable to realize that they were indeed "actors" and that was their job . Unlike you, they are able to not judge a book by its cover. Too bad for you, you believe the lie that you are not worthy of any space in the world the has class, honor, and goodness. Oh yeah, your so "Bad" and too cool. You just made yourself look as bad as you think people think you are.
Jesse highlights the actors LA environment and he is not alone in doing so. He also has the courage to say what he prefers and its the real world. Now how can anybody say the life is normal when many before him have said the same. Sandra is a wonderful holywood idol woi is an actrice and why would she not prepare a speech but the sentiments of closeess sound challenged. Who are we to challenge?
He needs to move on. He says he's over her but he's using her celebrity to fill up his bank account. Honestly would he be on here if he hadn't married her, then cheated on her? Once a cheater always a cheater so hope his new fiancee keeps her eye on him.
She obviously has more class because she hasn't spoken a word negatively about him since their divorce but he's all over the media. "Crying" for Barbara Walters, etc. He's as much of a "fake" and an actor as the people who supposedly despises.
Here's the real world Jesse lives in and has created for himself: he has now abandoned two wives, there are young kids involved, and he behaves like HE'S the victim in all of this. They used to have a word for this kind of guy: CAD.
99% of what people do daily is fake. Stop and think to yourself and find a time you are not either trying to please or "act" the way you are expect. The world is a place for showmanship. I personally think the ex has no room to blame anyone but himself. Mature adults know what is going on. I feel he was extremely selfish. Actors and spouses and any married couple needs to find ways to be together NOT w/the public, separate friends, etc. Thats the downfall. We have become a self centered society.
this guy is a loser: sandra is better off with out him and he deserve nothing better than dirt- that why his with that other dirt person- whats her name Kat somthing!!!!!! both losers
If Sandra wanted a fake Hollywood life, she would not have married Jesse James. It got be love at that time. Otherwise she would have chosen another glam doll. Such a UGLY loser! Now he is trying to make a living out of his past connection with Sandra. ONCE A CHEATER, ALWAYS A CHEATER!
This guy is obviously still pained!no matter how much in luv he claims to be with dat Kat or watever,he s not gotten over sandra and then going about it d wrong way.sore looser!a total freak n jerk.a disgrace of a father!crawl back into ur cave n never come out dude cos d whole world is tired of ur rigid-looking self!
I agree with Rose above, this guy is obviously still pained by it all. I don't blame Sandra, there really is NOTHING to talk about. She's moved on with her life, he really should do the same. This interview with Piers is obviously his attempt at purging himself. He doesn't need to continue to explain himself in the media because we all know that he is a SLEAZE BALL. He doesn't need to break it down for us....we get it.
Jesse James is utterly classless and pathetic. There are certainly much better guests who must've been interviewed instead of him.. no amount of talking could ever redeem this man's ruined reputation, which he did to himself and still continues to do so.
Seriously, Piers? Are you having that much trouble getting guests that you'd stoop to this piece of roadkill? He is a no talent, ignorant wannabe that only got a business on the go because of his first wife, Karla and got his limited fame from Sandra. For someone who thought it was all fake, he had no problem sucking up the perks that went with it. At least now with Kat VD he's finally with his mirror image.
Can't believe how many people are still watching this show. Don't you people see how fake this guy is? I mean morgan. Why is he pre- taping his shows? what is he afraid of?
me think the pig doth protest too much!
He is a pig.
Jesse probably felt insecure while around those "Hollywood types." Having an affair was his way of getting caught so he'd have a way out of his uncomfortable marriage. I think Sandra married him because he was 'average' and not a "Hollywood type?" Go figure?
From Oprah to Jesse, started out with hard to get guests and now pulling then out of the toilet. That was a rapid descent intot the abyss, who is advising you, do they work for another network?
He's digging his own hole. His countdown has begun. Keeping the champaigne handy for when he is finally off the air. Seriuosly, CNN? This is the best you could do? there was no one in the entire USA, an you had to get this one? OK, let's make a deal: you send him to wherever he came from, and we'll pretend this never happened. Don't wait too long, though. Our patience is running thin.
Seriously are you nuts or on drugs? Suffering from tunnel vision are you?
So why is Mr. Bad Boy Image dressed up like a pretty boy? To clean up his image or scam the public looking so sweet? Would he wear this type of dress up at one of his motorcycle rallies? This really is bad boy gone bad! Get off it Jesse and be you even if you can't own up to your own failings. PAY UP, sucker! If you can't be you in public don't go public. I don't know why you agreed to this interview except to clean up your "public image" and malign Sandra. Can't wait to see the photos of the interview in the "Easy Rider" rag. We are not fooled by your camouflaged image. On a scale from 1 to 10, you get a one!
To the comments below, be probably feels pained because he was fooled and lied to – that the person he liked turned out to not be real. As he said, it was all pretend.
I can't believe he has the nerve to come out and say those things about their relationship now. What a sleazebag. No respect for a woman he spent those years with. Do you see Sandra out and about rambling about this? No, because she doesn't need this kind of garbage to get publicity. Her talent and class speak for themselves.
No more Trash please.
If you are referring to piers, I second that. Yes, please CNN, no more of this trash!
Pierce is doing a great job sadly he invites some trash to keep the same saga of Larry King. Some gems are not recognized easily and Pierce is one of them. Great choice CNN.
Obviously, Sandra thought what she was getting was something "real". It's too bad Jesse's self esteem got the better of him. If Jesse doesn't understand the meaning of "real" LOVE, then maybe he needs to study the Bible. Just sayin'....
Piers Morgan is beginning to 'bottom feed' for guests much like his predecessor.
Can't take him anymore. Can't wait for this pompous arrogant to go away.
Greasy, dirty (his words) are precisely right. But not his clothes or his fingernails working in the shop. It applies to his ethics and morals and sense of honor in a marriage ! I agree with others who said he is PIG !
Run out of honestly interesting people, Piers? What a waste of time!
I am going to agree with so many people before me on this topic....I have been slowly wondering why Piers Morgan has a show and having Jessie James on simply adds to this feeling. Yes, I understand Jessie James has a book so I guess Piers Morgan will help him advertise. This isn't even controversial if that were the excuse. No reason to provide this guy with a forum, a new low.
Jessie should stop talking...what a loser. Sandra is lucky to be rid of him!
He dug his own grave someone just needs to cover it up. Any takers I've got extra shovels
WHY waste time interviewing HIM when it is Sandra we LOVEEEEE!!!!!! He is cheating dork whose opinion I don't really care about. HE CHEATED ON HER and is talking about her "acting" hollywood!
I must be missing something here – didn't he have HIS OWN TV SHOW long before he ever met Sandra Bullock????? So he was in that world by HIS CHOICE before he knew her, but he's making it sound like his world is so real, and she's the one who brought him into the "fake" world... yeah, right.
Who's the "actor" Jesse? U were married to this woman who loved not just u, but u'r kids, for 5 (count em) years & every day u LIED to her w/a straight face!!! Now u imply that her Hollywood lifestyle is too fake for U?! U'r the fake, C-Leb "wannabe" but u'll never amount to nuttin but a Zzz-lister!
This guy is a total loser with no class. With every word he utters he makes himself look worse. Oh please, when WILL he go away?
Sandra and Louie are better off without you loser. Why don't you tattoo that on your forhead, along with cheatin ass!
jesse james is a miserable loser and
I love Sandy Bullock! However, it was her fault for setting her eyes on this trailer park white trash! Women cannot continue to think they will change a man. Look at him! He's a redneck mechanic!!!!! I mean, seriously, to say in public that your current girlfriend is much better in bed than your ex-wife?!?!!? Only guys with no balls could do such a thing! And in the end, he went back exactly to where he came from. Look at the girl he has now. Like attracts like...
What a better world it would be if we all stopped judging...and seeing people and putting a label on them.
Instead of petty gossip and malicious remarks about people you do not and can not know....turned that negative energy into something productive..positive
Jesse calls himself 'American Outlaw". What he doesn't get is that most of the population does not consider his life style to be that. It appears that he has written about reacting to events in his life that he thinks are out of the mainstream. That's not being an 'outlaw'; that's being out of control.
Bullock has not made good choices when it comes to men. Sad but true. She's out favorite but Sandra....those so called bad guys are just insecure damaged males. Stop it!
If I had a dollar for every time Jesse said "you know" during the interview, I'd be a rich woman. He proved himself to be classless and inarticulate. Seriously wondering what Sandra saw in him.
I remember when Sandra used to talk about how lucky she was to be with Jesse, it made me look at him in an incredibly positive light. I figured he must be a wonderfully loving, grounded, and supportive partner, and I found myself wishing him the best.
Sandra had nothing to gain by lying about her adoration for her husband, in fact, if anything was gained it was Jesse's public image. Also, Sandra has been in many pubic relationships, and this was the first time she spoke so openly and fondly about someone she was with. I'm sorry Jesse, blaming Sandra for lying is just another way cheaters like you deflect the guilt they're running from in their heads. Kat is an idiot for being with him, this man will cheat in you.
Nothing worse than a egotistical loser is a gloating egotistical loser. And one trying to bank of the negative image created for himself and the pain he's caused someone else. If he was Joe Schmo, people wouldn't give him the light of day and call him a scoundrel- Pier and Jesse both banking on his bad behavior, and, almost, condoning it. How embarrassing and humiliating for Sandra- I hope she doesn't see this. Or if she does, it reaffirms that nothing she did caused such awful behavoir from him.
He's such an egomaniac. So it's okay for him to embarrass her in public and the media like that and now he says she was "lying" about her praise for him in her acceptance speeches? If she knew he was cheating she would've dumped his ass. And the "pretend" Hollywood life? Mo'fo you knew what her job was and you still married her. Why? Could it be because of her status as an actress? How many people knew who he was before he married her? I never watched his show and didn't know until then. Go ahead and capitalize on her fame that helped you get where you are ass.
Remember friends....... TURDS really stink at first and then they eventually dry up and desintigrate!
Not compatibilities at all... the beauty and the beast only appeared in tale...
Gosh I'm totally shocked wat an absolute ass dis guy is. Sandra shud be countin her lucky stars she is free of this idiot, she deserves so much more. As if the cheatin was not enough, to actually insinuate she never loved him n was acting!, wat a load of crap.If he had any class he wudnt even have given dis interview or release such a book NOW. Dis ass is jst tryin to cash in. Sandra hasn't give one int about dis...n still only says nice things about him, he shud hav learnt at least a tad bit of class from her. Class has nothing to do with bein an actor or being in hollywood. I'm just glad Sandra is rid of this emotionally void, arrogant fool. Hopefully she finds some1 way better dat appreciates her. South Africa loves Sandra!..
Hey CNN, Please wake up and Post my
Comment to this Blog. Have u taken Sunday off?
Thank you. ( We are always watching the Liberal
Media Bias )..!
he sounds like he is on drugs. .....
I think we may be missing the point here. Your marriage ended on the basis of your infidelity. This is not the time to clean up your image. Its done, stop commenting, stop writing, stop granting interviews. Relationships end sometimes, invest your time in something beneficial like your business or your current significant other. Take the high road much like she has and don't discuss your dirty laundry.
Jesse Rules, Sandra is prolly just to pretentious to please any man.
god i wish she wouldnt have had a lapse in judgement, he is a total loser. He wont go away, clinging on to his 15 seconds of fame. U hate fame so much then why are u on a publicity tour! Such a waste of time, stop talking to this guy he is about as relevant as characters from last years real world. Go away!
Funny!, he's so glad to be our of that fake world but has no problem being on their talk show and spending the money that comes with it. What a hypocrite. He's "glad he's out". Then why is he on a talk show and writing a tell-all book. Oh, thats right, "real people", like me, do it everyday. I'm always on Kimmel.
Lol @ kevin. It's probably not prolly. Lol. But you can spell pretentious.
Jesse I hope you read these!! You did nothing by this interview but make everyone hate you more!! You may call Sandra "fake" but honestly we all know who is truley fake! You had a woman who cared for you very much and you thought it would be better to stick your little man part in any hole on any woman you could! I am sure if Sandra were as insecure as yourself she could get on t.v. And tell everyone that the other men she has been with, who are easy to look at and tell they know what to do in bed, are by far better than you!! You really need to grow and be a man! And by the way that cheap immitation of Sandra you are marrying, haha, I hope she isn't dumb enough to think you will stop your cheating ways!! Good luck to you and your little book! Guess what nobody cares about you anymore!! You are just the man who broke "americas favorite actresses" heart! Good luck on the new wife!! Can't wait to hear who number 5 and 6 will be!!
The only thing I can fault Sandra for is marrying that piece of trash!
And here I thought after Charlie Sheen, that it couldn't get any funnier...then Piers pulls this nappy out of the bin
The "pretend" Hollywood life? Does he mean to say that living a secretive, adulterous, double-life wasn't a pretense?
He should say he was pretending to boink other women haaaaaa.....
Sandra should smile sometime. Hmmm?
What a jerk! Sandra never talked bad about him he needs to keep his mouth shut! If you don't want to be in Hollywood the shutup and go away!
yup, the back of a greasy shop, that's where you belong!
Psychopaths/sociopaths are interesting people. They are at least until people supposedly close to them separate themselves from them and look at the devastation caused, realize who they thought they were with could only clearly be seen from a distance. There are are always women drawn to them, but then they will have their own aftermaths to deal with later. What a hurtful, insincere, classless person he is, a player and a fool, but he is who he is and can apparently detach himself with ease, if ever attached. Why should anyone be surprised, I suppose, that he turns so wishy washily on those who loved him, or thought they did because apparently he didn'really exist as the person they thought they knew, anyway. Read Dr. Robert Hare's Book Without Conscience Without Remorse The World of the Psychpopath. That book helped me understand a lot, although not really recover from what happened to me. It was actually a two page article in the Edmonton Journal years ago that prompted me to read the book. I finally understood a little more, but many psychopaths exhaust people including financially because too many spend too much time trying to figure them out and the psychopath thrives on that, also, although doesn't really care. They aren't worth the angst, thought, understanding, giving, caring, none of it, but they play people well, use well, lie well, manipulate, etc. They are awful, but women like bad guys and they can be charismatic.
is it just me or did beavis and butthead morph themselves into jesse james? there's nothing more fake than a cartoon character....and I cant stop thinking that this man is beavis and butthead. he learned how to speak english from them.
JUST ANOTHER JERKY, HE IS PROBABLY JEALOUS, BUSINESS MUST BE SLOW. HE NEEDS THE PUBLICITY.
BY THE WAY IF HE IS GOING TO GIVE MORE INTERVIEW CORRECT YOUR FREQUENTS "you know" "you know"
"you kjnow" every other 3 words. – Sandra Bullock is so lucky that he got rid of him.
The worst of this interview was how freaking BORING it was! For God's sake, Piers, interview someone with something to say! This horrific in-bred loser whose one note answer to every question was "it's sad" or "I'm sad" has nothing to tell anyone. I wouldn't be the tiniest bit surprised if he ended up hurting someone or himself before it's all over. Ugh. I had to turn it off.
I guess his lying are acting too. He is an idiot. Tell him to shut his trap
In no way should he ever ever imply anything negative about Sandra. She has not spoken about him in public nor should he about her. To say that she did the same speech at award shows four times touting him as wonderful in each of them is so petty. He may be too stupid to recognize that maybe she said it more than once because she loved him. Duh! He is such a nit wit..under-educated slime ball.
He's looking for justification-he's not getting it here. He married Sandy full well knowing that she is an actress..and I think she truly loved this schmuck. What he did to her and then try to blow it off with a "Tiger Woods moment" is unjustifiable. Addicts know their addicts before they take marriage vows..he's an ass and always will be.. and I could care less that he had someone write a book for him, put his name on it and now he's trying to sell his hard luck story.
