Singer Harry Connick Junior has described his pal Sandra Bullock as an ‘incredible woman’ whom he would ‘thank God’ to have as a wife.
The actor and jazz pianist gushed about the Oscar-winning actress as he discussed her relentless commitment to his beloved home city of New Orleans, devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
When asked by talk show host Larry King about Bullock’s recent traumas over the breakdown of her marriage, Connick Jnr – who is happily married – seemed to send out a stark message to her cheating soon-to-be-ex-husband Jesse James.
“I think Sandy is an incredible woman and she doesn’t need my prayers, she’s so strong,’ he said, during Friday night’s special episode to mark the five-year anniversary of the deadly hurricane. ‘I pray for her and I send her emails and tell her I love her and I hope she’s doing well‘.
‘That woman is one of the fiercest, strongest most dedicated people I know. It’s sucks, man. Let’s put it this way, if she was my wife I would be on my knees thanking God that I had a woman like that. Everybody’s different but I know her pretty well. Like my wife now, I wouldn’t screw that up for all the money in the world, for anything.‘
Pointing to his own wedding ring, he added: ‘This means a lot. It’s a pretty serious commitment, I’m not passing judgment on anyone but whoever ends up with her (Bullock) for good is gonna be one lucky son of a gun‘.
‘I know her son doesn’t even know how lucky he is.‘
