As Sandra Bullock files for divorce from husband Jesse James and adopts son Louis as a single mom, James says he's left with "a huge hole in my heart."James told People.com that it would be selfish not to let her go.

James made the statement Wednesday after the Oscar-winning actress disclosed in an interview with People.com that she and her now-estranged husband adopted a newborn child several months ago.

In his statement, James speaks of an unspecified addiction that he says has taken from him the child and his wife. He calls them "two of the things I love the most in life."

The Hollywood couple separated in March after reports of his infidelity.
