Aw, Man: Rashida Jones Apologizes For Saying John Travolta Should Come Out


We just got through giving Rashida Jones some props for keeping it real during a recent interview for Celeste and Jesse Forever and then she went into Hollywood spin mode.

Talking to about Frank Ocean and the power of famous people coming out, Jones said:

A movie star [needs to come out]. Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let’s do this.”

But this week Jones took to her Twitter and backed away from her previous statement: “Made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta. I sincerely apologize. Nobody’s personal life is my business.”

It kind of seems like maybe Jones was told to apologize, since in her Platters interview she said, “I’m 36, I’ve lived the life that I’ve lived, I have the opinions that I have, and I don’t really back down from that.”

Of course, she also said “I struggle every time I tweet,” so who knows what’s going on.
