Jesse James, the "most hated man in America," broke into tears during his first interview since his infidelities became tabloid fodder. James told ABC’s Nightline that he "thew it all away" when he cheated on wife Sandra Bullock with tattoo model Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.

According to McGee, the affair began in April 2009 while Bullock was in Atlanta filming The Blind Side in a role that would later garner her first Golden Globe and Academy Award. Bullock famously thanked her husband for "having her back" during her Golden Globe acceptance speech.

The interview is set to air Tuesday night on ABC. –ELENA COX
