Is best-actress win a marriage curse?

The husband of Oscar winner Sandra Bullock says he's sorry for the pain and embarrassment he's caused her after reports he's been unfaithful. Bullock married motorcycle builder Jesse James in 2005. The New York Post reports that he's having an affair with a tattooed model named Michelle "Bombshell" McGee.

Bullock cancelled an appearance at the London premiere of her movie "The Blind Side" saying she couldn't attend for "unforeseen personal reasons."

James told People magazine he exhibited "poor judgment" and said, "I deserve everything bad that is coming my way."

If Bullock and James split, it continues a long chain of broken relationships for best actress winners.

Among them, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon and Julia Roberts, who all split from their partners within a year of winning. Hillary Swank and Charlize Theron are also on the list.

And in recent weeks, past winners Susan Sarandon and Kate Winslet have separated from their mates.
