LOS ANGELES, United States - Oscar-winner Sandra Bullock has filed for divorce, People magazine reported on its website Wednesday, one month after several women came forward claiming to have had affairs with her husband Jesse James.

"Yes, I have filed for divorce," the 45-year old Hollywood actress told the weekly, reportedly adding that she felt "sad and ... scared."

People also reported that Bullock has adopted an African-American infant, Louis Bardo Bullock, aged three and a half months. The magazine on its cover features a photo of a beaming Bullock holding the baby aloft.

Bullock won her first best-actress Oscar last month for her role in the hit film "The Blind Side." She moved out of the couple's home soon after winning the award, amid reports that James, 41, had affairs with at least four women.

James, Bullock's husband of nearly five years, issued a statement apologizing to his wife and children, and reportedly sought in-patient treatment at a clinic.

People magazine reported that Bullock and James began the adoption process together four years ago, and that they brought Louis home in January from New Orleans.

They decided to keep the news of the adoption to themselves until after the Oscars, said the magazine, which reported that Bullock now is adopting as a single parent.
