Ever since audio was leaked to the web, in which actor Stephen Collins speaks on molesting underage girls, we haven’t heard much from him.

Now, however, he has decided to answer everyone’s questions, as he recently sat down for an interview with Katie Couric, and admitted to inappropriate behavior with three underage girls. Despite the incidents, he also denied being a pedophile, saying that if more victims make similar claims in the future, “it would not be the truth.”

He told the host:

“I’m absolutely not attracted, physically or sexually attracted to children.”

“I didn’t white-knuckle this… I’m not fighting. It’s not like if I miss therapy next week something’s going to happen,” he added. “I’m a human being. I have faults, and I’ve done things that I deeply regret.”

He also says that his ex-wife recorded the revealing therapy session that was later released to the world. Collins describes that moment:

“She took me into a stairwell, and she told me there,” Collins said. “She revealed that–she said, ‘I recorded. I was wearing a wire. I recorded that session.’ … and she said, ‘Here’s our settlement. You’re going to sign it now. Or … that recording is going to find its way to the media.’”

“I’ve always said this, marriage is absolutely unfathomable,” he added. “You think you understand someone else’s marriage, nobody does. Nobody does.”

During the interview, he also admits that after touching the first girl, he knew that he did something “unthinkably wrong.”

He describes it detail:

“And I took her hand and moved it in such a way that she was touching me inappropriately,” he said. “I knew that something unthinkably wrong had just happened that I couldn’t take back, And I–I think we both just sat there. We really didn’t move a muscle.”

“And after about–what I recall was about 45 seconds, I took her hand and moved it back,” Collins continued. “I waited a couple of minutes, because I just didn’t know what to do or say. And then I got up and left the room.”

We hope he continues to get the help he needs. For more from his interview, click here; Collins also talks about his own experience with being exposed to adult nudity as a child.
