File this Jesse James story under 'paparazzi are people too'

Jesse-james This isn't the Ministry's normal type of post, but we stumbled upon an only-in-celebrity-land item that made us go "aww" just a little bit. In a sort of jaded way. But "aww" nonetheless.

Seems Jesse James apologized to a celebrity videographer (that's code for "paparazzo with a video camera") Thursday after a run-in Wednesday, telling the X17 associate, "Sorry for yesterday. I understand you're just doing your job. Just be cool and don't get in my face." According to X17, James then offered his hand to shake on it.

The paparazzi scene outside West Coast Choppers was rather chaotic Wednesday, Radar Online said, after news hit that James' wife, Sandra Bullock, had filed for divorce. At least James knew the People cover story was coming.

As always, what a difference a day makes. OK, so it's only a tiny difference, but -- still a difference.
