Just days after celebrating her first Oscar win, Sandra Bullock's marriage to Jesse James seems to be nearing an end as she has moved out of the family home after reports of infidelity on his part.

It looks like Ms. Bullock will join the long line of Oscar-winning women actors whose marriage ended soon after they won the coveted award, including Kate Winslet, Halle Berry, Angelina Jolie, Hillary Swank and Kim Bassinger.

The news of Ms. Bullock's marital problems emerged just a day after last year's winner Kate Winslet announced that her marriage to director Sam Mendes was over.

The 45-year-old Miss Congeniality star won the Best Actress Oscar this year but her marriage is on the rocks after a tattoo model claimed that she had a long affair with her husband, Jesse James.

The actor has left the Southern California mansion she shares with her motorbike enthusiast husband and cancelled the London premiere of her film The Blind Side, reported People magazine online.

Ms. Bullock had thanked Mr. James for his support in her Oscar speech and his eyes welled with tears as she spoke of her love for him, but according to In Touch magazine he betrayed her by having a 11-month relationship with Michelle “bombshell” McGee. — PTI
