Rashida Jones Apologizes For John Travolta Gay Comment

Rashida Jones has apologized for a comment that she made implying that John Travolta is gay and needs to come out of the closet.

In an interview with Spinning Platters to promote her new movie Celeste and Jesse Forever, the 36-year-old actress discussed Frank Ocean‘s coming out and voiced her hope that a major movie star would come out next.

“A movie star. Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let’s do this,” she said.

Rashida took to her Twitter account to apologize for the comment: “Made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta. I sincerely apologize. Nobody’s personal life is my business,” she wrote.

How does she go from promoting her movie to getting into Travolta’s business? If he is gay, that is his business not hers. Her comments were stupid and irrelevant!

Oh but that was the best comment EVER! I get she had to apologize for it though. Damn.

What ***** he is, take off that filthy rug.

# 5

Forgive her and move on.

# 6

Nice of Jones to apologize, but her candor in the interview was even more refreshing. So tired of celebs who only say in public what their publicists have pre-approved.

# 7

Nice of her to apologize, should not have said anything to begin with. The man has a family for goodness sake. These sorts of rumors can hurt a family for life even when they are blatantly untrue.

# 8

does anyone actually believe that he’s straight?

# 9

This is real life, not a play thing. How would she like someone to call her a hermaphrodite for example. Good of her to have the decency to apologize. If someone wants to reveal something about his or herself, the person should do it because it feels right and is prepared to do so…. period. Good luck Travolta! I love you in Greece.

She surely wasnt sorry and everything was planned on. A tip: try to wash your vag*na before speaking.

I personally don’t hold it against gay actors who do not want to come out. It’s nobody’s business but their own who they love and want to spend time with. Also, when you know the actor is gay, it does make it harder to believe them in romantic scenes with women, so I think they should keep their sexuality private for professional reasons. We should mind our own business regarding public figures love lives.

SO she’s sorry for telling the TRUTH, he should be the one apologizing for being FAKE

Oh come on, everybody in Hollywood knows he is gay. So why is she apologizing for?

Seriously? On one point it is HIS business, but don’t act like the evidence PILING up against him over MANY years will convince me he is straight. Worse kept secret in Hollywood. Scientology people might come after her.

@….hmmm: Like the SAME rumors that have been going on about him for YEARS? Even BEFORE Rashida said anything? Yeah. She didn’t make them up on her own.

@jmho: makes it harder to believe? what an idiot. most actors are face it and grow up its acting

Stupid thing to say (whether it’s true or not!) and no apology will change the fact she said it. She seems like a cool, smart girl. I’m sure she wont do something so thoughtless again.

Good for her. We all make mistakes.

@spare us: “Most actors are”.. what a stupid thing to type. How the fcuk does this person know who’s gay or not. Must be one of those gays who thinks EVERYBODY is gay too. ahahahahahaha Idiot.

Kelly Preston doesn’t mind.

hello-world @ 08/14/2012 at 6:16 pm

@jmho: I agree it’s not our business who is gay and who is not but it’s different when you LIE and DECEIVE and take people for idiots. Those who are gay and don’t want to come out, fine, I don’t care, but do not FAKE that you are in love with a woman when you are a homosexual male. That’s just DECEIT and wrong.

I wonder if John Travolta’s funeral will resemble the scene from Death at a Funeral when the dead guy’s lover comes to pay his respects, but no one knew he had a secret gay lover. For Travolta though it will be many many gay lovers lol

She apologized in a half-arsed way. I apologize – but your personal business in yours – implying that it still might be true but she should not have said it.


That said – if Travolta IS bisexual and his wife is fine with it, then why is it anybody elses business at all?

Bigotry against gays and bisexuals should simply not be tolerated.

@[~Fug Face Man!ston~]: You’ve made a career of stupid JJ posts LOL

Travolta is as gay as Barack Obama’s birth certificate. One of the reasons why you know this is true is because the media is saying that it is not true.
