"It's just the nature of my life. People always will want me sainted one minute, and strung up the next."
James insisted he's been misunderstood and overly criticized.
"I stood up like a man and admitted my wrongs and what I did and all that did is make every s*** tabloid everywhere across the world come after me even harder," he said in the interview.
""I'm strong. I can take it. Everybody can take cheap shots and say I'm a horrible dad, and that I'm a Nazi, and all this other bulls***. Give me all you got. Because you know what? I know inside what kind of a person I am. I know I'm an awesome dad. I'm devoted to my work. And I work hard to take care of my family.

"People have always been scared of me and always think I'm a bigot or a racist or a homophobe just by the way I look," he lamented. "I'm 6'3", and 215 pounds, tattooed-up white boy. It fits a criminal or whatever."
James has now relocated to Austin, Texas, where his ex Sandra Bullock makes her primary home, although the two have no contact.
