John Travolta: I've Been Beating Myself Up All Day After Mispronouncing Idina Menzel's Name

John Travolta has broken his silence on his flub at the 2014 Oscars where he introduced Idina Menzel as Adele Dazeem!

“I’ve been beating myself up all day,” the 60-year-old actor said in a statement. “Then I thought, what would Idina Menzel say? She’d say, let it go, let it go!”

    He’s good for his age ! Pitt and DiCaprio will not be

    I can understand that you can’t know every singer and actor. I have never heard of her until the Oscars. They should have pronuntiation cards for all presenters. But I don’t know how he got it THAT wrong? It wasn’t even close.

  • Ande

    and this is why JT is still relevant.
    humble, sincere, funny and all around good person.

  • I Mean…

    I think John Travolta would be interesting as a public persona if he’d just STEP OUTTA the closet. Seriously…

  • lol

    Yeah… We’ll live. It was nothing.

  • Tyla

  • Le Roy Sweet Heart

    and then…he went on down to the local massage salon for a happy ending with Leroy


  • Looselipz

    Obviously he missed the dress rehearsal. He had to have gotten a memo about who he was announcing…this was seriously just weird….almost like he was drunk or on drugs..but, think of all the PR he’s had from this?
    Travolta is a great actor, but a bit of a weirdo.

  • Sgrill

    Seriously? He mispronounced a name. He didn’t murder anyone. Does there always have to be some huge scandal? Its no big deal.

    @Ande: I guess the masseuse settled out of court. 3 men accused him of hitting on them.
