Rashida Jones took to Twitter on Tuesday to apologize for remarks she made about John Travolta earlier this month.
“Made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta. I sincerely apologize. Nobody's personal life is my business,” she wrote.
While promoting her new movie “Celeste and Jesse Forever,” Jones suggested that more celebrities should be open about their sexuality, like Frank Ocean.
“A movie star. Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let’s do this,” she jokingly told music website Spinning Platters.
Travolta had been accused of sexual assault in a lawsuit by a male cruise ship attendant. An earlier sexual battery lawsuit had been abandoned by other accusers.
Jason LeRoy, whose byline appears on the interview with Jones that published August 10, told ABCNews.com: “It was a bold thing to say, but it was coming from a good place. It was within the context of a conversation about how empowering it was when Frank Ocean came out.”
The conversation began when “Celeste and Jesse Forever” actor and co-screenwriter Will McCormack, who was also being interviewed, suggested, “There needs to be, like, a professional athlete that comes out.”
What's the difference between a gay man and a freezer?
The freezer doesn't fart when you pull the meat out.
HILARIOUS!!! Thanks for the laugh
Okay, I am gay. And I must admit I am laughing at that one. Very funny! (although the farting has personally never happened to me – either when I've been the "meat" or the "freezer.")
John Travolta, Oprah W, Matthew McConaughey, and George Clooney to name a few, should really come out of the closet, why pretend they like the opposite when they really are gay. This is year 2012 and not B.C. Stop lying to the public.
Don't you think if Oprah was gay she would have no problems saying so? What does she have to lose? She has enough money to do whatever in the hell she wants to do and lying is not an option for her I AM SURE! Do you have a BFF does that make you gay? People need to stop hating and judging it is really not anyone's business who does what!
Hmmm? Got money on some bets there? Like it's any of your business whether they are or not. Now step away from the magazines and finish getting your groceries checked out.
Unfortunate, classless choice of hers... Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton as parents, a lifetime of growing up among entertainment's elite, and she still makes a blunder like that... tsk, tsk, tsk...
Nooo I'm Vinnie Barbarinooooooo!
All butt phuckers should stay in their closet. That and clothes is why they are built.
I know that JOhn Travolta was in that stayin alive movie but who are these other people? Never heard of them....
I thought he was awsome as the younger luke skywaler in the revenge of those empire moveis.
I don't know, his hairdo is looking pretty gay to me.
Why does everyone always assume that gay men are interested in guys' d*¢ks? Roughly half are not attracted to that in a partner...
Right, Eusoubra. About 1/2 of gay men are not attracted to the Little Richard. Lie. Regardless, it is a metaphor. It you'd shut you'd shut your butt and open a book, you'd understand.
The other half are interested in the behinds? or is it the body hair or whiskers. Yuuuuuuuck?
What? Then the other half are interested in the behinds? or is it the body hair or whiskers. Yuuuuuuuck?
She was right about him.He likes to smoke the bone.
She's one to talk – that triangle face of hers will fit nicely into a spot to eat at the Y
ehhh Mistah Kottah...i sucked a d1ck
This would be interesting if anyone (aside from about 10% of the readers) knew who Frank Ocean was. You're talking about him like he's Frank Sinatra. Also, Travolta – why waste that hottie Kelly Preston like that. You should be ashamed.
he's a wimp
I think he SHOULD finally come out... as a straight man. Enough of this pretending to be a gay man stuff.
mission–sounds like fun.
you keep working on that mission now,.
I'm not sure the place you are getting your info, but good topic. I needs to spend a while finding out more or working out more. Thank you for wonderful information I used to be looking for this information for my mission.
Who cares? We should concentrate our observations of him abo
ut the fact that his cosmetic surgery is purely awful!.
you so right Friederich
if its true, this will be another marriage mess.

Idiots, idiots, idiots. How many times do I have to say this? If you can't spell, punctuate, or use proper grammar,
why do you keep writing in and showing how ignorant you are?
John T. is a good guy, has a good family, and has a right to keep his private life private. It's no one's business but
leave salleeeeeeeeeee alone. after all, this ain't no academic forum.
and we ain't talking 'bout puncuation, grammar, spelling, etc. we're
talkin john t. here!
he does look like a bad caricature of himself, AND he should come out!
It is his business until his massage turns into a forcible anal rape.
Hello folks. Everyone is cordially invited to visit... thestarofkaduri.com
JOHN should mourn the passing of Ron.
We will miss Ron Palillo.
maybe he only slips the beef, rather than being the slippee
If you will pitch than you will catch eventually.
Why dont some people just mind there own bizz, john travolta is the king of the dance floor,he's not gay,maybe she said
that because she's a lesbin.
What's a Lesbin?
Good night Irene. Travolta is gay. Way to go Vinny
Way to go Karen!
Maybe John is bi. Frankly, I don't care what his preference is. I think he is a really good actor, and has made a lot of really good movies. Who would have thought he'd turn into such a good actor from his start in Welcome back Kotter.
he needs to come out about that hair piece or whatever that is
i'd go with him..he's still too cute.
And you are male or female?
he's still adorable, women still love jt and i really don't think they'll care if he just simply tells the truth-
and a huge something else too.
big penchant for d1ck?
Dayum, she has a huge forehead.
Heidi hoho fixx in texas.
Who cares? Why do people have to come out if they don't want to. He seems like a decent human being with a nice family. Leave him alone.
its not like he's had the greatest career of all time..everyone loves him..he has not done great movies except his comeback movie pulp fiction and get shorty. admit to the public your gay or straight..everyone will love JT
anyway. he is charming and has a great personality. i wonder what kelly preston will do if he does admit he's gay.
i agree..most are not even watching...its all the info from what they read and they apply it to a blog.
make your own judgement folks.
its like most of these comments...people talk without knowing the material or have ever watched the show
she really should not have commented on jt.
i can't believe she's related to peggy lipton...thats so cool.
smart woman vs. a putz.
Well, she wanted to promote her new movie. I guess she's doing it, I never heard of it before this story.
You're kidding right? You need to do some Googling on John Travolta. He'll never come out. He'll take this secret to his grave.
at 56 yrs old....he still has the cutest italian smile ever! lol
this rumor of him being gay has been going on for years...he has been caught now.
The proof is in the magic fingers he displayed to the masseurs. From what I hear, he left a bit of proof on Matthew Broderick's chin as well
where are you come forth ..... dummy
John Travolta has never been "in the closet."
But someone should LOCK him in one!
She should not apologize. Him and Tom Cruise both need too.
Truth is the Scientology goons paid her a visit in the middle of the night and told her to cool it.
Lmao..I wouldn't be surprised.
And your proof of this is WHAT?
how could he do this to me-lol
I can't see J.T wanting the beef in the backside.
