In his first interview since being convicted of assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Grace Jabbari, Jonathan Majors spoke with ABC News anchor Linsey Davis on Good Morning America.

The 34-year-old Marvel actor shared that he was "absolutely shocked and afraid" upon hearing the verdict, shedding light on his emotional response to the recent legal outcome.

"I'm standing there and the verdict comes down. I say, 'How is that possible based off the evidence, based off the prosecution's evidence, let alone our evidence? How is that possible?" Majors said in the ABC interview.

Majors stated that he had "never hit a woman," acknowledging, however, that his relationship with British dancer Jabbari became unhealthy after they crossed paths on the set of Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. He admitted, "I was reckless with her heart, not with her body," and denied ever hitting her or any other woman.

"I'm an athlete. I'm a sportsman. I know my body. I know how it moves. I know my strength, or lack thereof, you know? None of that was employed on her," he emphasized during the interview.

In the interview, Majors acknowledged that he should have concluded his relationship with Jabbari earlier, expressing regret. He admitted, "I shouldn't have been in the car. I should have stepped out of the relationship. I shouldn't have been in the relationship. If I was not in the car, none of this would have happened."

The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania star expressed that he believed it was the right time to give the interview, citing significant developments not only in his personal life but also in his career and the broader culture. He stated, "It's about responsibility and coming forward and being brave and giving my part of the story."

Majors, found guilty of one count of misdemeanor third-degree assault and one count of second-degree harassment, while acquitted of two other counts of assault and aggravated harassment in a split verdict, revealed to Davis that he intends to appeal. As he awaits sentencing on the misdemeanor charges, Majors, who chose not to testify in his defense during the trial, expressed that he wanted to share his side of the story now as a part of the healing process.

"I'm really blessed. I'm surrounded by people who love me, who care about me. But this has been very, very, very hard, and very difficult, and confusing in many ways," Majors said. "But I'm standing."

Despite the anticipation of avoiding a jail sentence, Majors remains hopeful about resuming his Hollywood career, emphasizing that it depends on God's plan and timing. Notably recognized for his role as Kang the Conqueror in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Majors faced a setback when he was dismissed by Disney last month. Despite the challenges, he maintains a positive outlook on his future in the entertainment industry.
