Rashida Jones Apologizes for Urging John Travolta to Admit He's Gay
Whoops! Rashida Jones is swiftly trying to enact some damage control after making what she calls a "thoughtless" comment about John Travolta.
While promoting her new film, Celeste and Jesse Forever, the actress and her co-star, Will McCormack, got to talking about homosexuality in the entertainment business with magazine, Spinning Platters.
The subject of Frank Ocean was broached and the duo then started discussing how a professional athlete and big movie actor need to come out of the closet next.
"Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let’s do this," she quipped to the magazine.
While the statement was meant in jest, Rashida had a change of heart and Tweeted an "I'm sorry" this morning.
"Made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta. I sincerely apologize. Nobody's personal life is my business," she wrote.
The actress also expressed disdain for social networking and her Twitter handle expresses that she's "terrified" of the site.
"I struggle every time I tweet. It’s a thing for me," she said. "People were so condescending about me being new to Twitter! Like, “Oh, that’s adorable, you put a hashtag instead of an @ symbol!” I’m like, “You guys, the technology has only existed for like three years. Get off of it. Also it’s going to change in two month, so chill out.”
