Comedian David Letterman is certain nobody would plot to kidnap his baby son if he looked more like Sandra Bullock's rugged boyfriend Jesse James.

The chat show host was horrified when he recently learned that a man had allegedly hatched plans to kidnap his 16-month-old son HARRY and his nanny, and hold them for a $5 million (GBP2.6 million) ransom.

And Letterman believes such a threat would never have been aimed at him if he boasted a more rugged appearance.

He says, "If I looked like this, nobody would be bothering me about anything. There would have been no investigation if I looked like this. And he knows all about motorcycles and he knows how to build stuff. He's a standup guy... and his name is Jesse James. That's cool."
