Sandra Bullock: Jesse James is a pleasant surprise

Prior to meeting hunky hubby Jesse James, Sandra Bullock confesses to having a rather unflattering image of him in her mind.

“I had an image of an obese guy with a handlebar mustache,” she says of the former “Monster Garage” host (and current “Jesse James is a Dead Man” star and “Celebrity Apprentice” alum) in an interview in the July issue of Glamour.

“I think most of us are raised with preconceived notions of the choices we’re supposed to make,” Sandra tells Glamour. “We waste so much time making decisions based on someone else’s idea of our happiness—what will make you a good citizen or a good wife or daughter or actress. Nobody says, ‘Just be happy—go be a cobbler or go live with goats.'”

Sandra, 44, met Jesse when she took her godson to visit his company, West Coast Choppers. The couple will celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary in July. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar last month, Sandra spoke of how it took her a while to get used to Jesse’s gallant and gentlemanly ways.

Look at the way she looks at him. Is that love or what?

“I’ve had to learn a hard lesson in that I’m not allowed to open car doors anymore,” Sandra told Harper’s Bazaar. “It was so hard for me to allow someone to take care of me. It’s not because I can’t take care of myself. But Jesse was like, ‘Just let me do this.'”

Jesse, 40, has three children from past relationships: Chandler, 14, Jesse Jr., 11, and Sunny, 5. Sandra and Jesse are currently caring for Sunny because her mother, porn actress Janine Lindemulder, is serving time in jail for tax evasion.

Alas, the rest of the Glamour interview – which serves as promotion for Sandra’s new movie, “The Proposal” – shies away from the topic of Jesse. But you can read the full interview here.

Meanwhile, Jesse’s charm isn’t lost on older women, either. People reports that Sandra’s “Proposal” co-star, Betty White, found him just as charming.

“Every time he came around, it was like flirt-fest,” Sandra says of the rapport between Jesse and Betty.

“Jesse came to see (Sandra) a couple of times (on set),” Betty tells People.” He’s interesting. I don’t think there is a square quarter inch on him that isn’t tattooed. And I love it.”

Betty recalls, “Finally somebody asked Sandra, ‘Do the tattoos ever bother you?’ She said, ‘No, no. At night when I can’t sleep, I just roll over and read him.'”

Betty shares a kinship with Sandra and Jesse: They are all pet lovers, and the couple apparently has two dogs with missing legs.

“They also had three little Chihuahuas, one with three legs and one with two legs,” Betty explains. “Come to find out it was Jesse, Mr. Macho Motorcycle Tattoo Man, who keeps bringing them home. (Sandra) said, ‘Jesse, we cannot have another handicapped dog.’ (He said), ‘Oh, yes we can.’ (He’s) a big softie.”
