Rashida Jones apologized for imploring John Travolta to come out of the closet.

While promoting her new film “Celeste and Jesse Forever,” Jones spoke of her admiration of Frank Ocean, the young R&B singer who opened up about his sexuality earlier this summer, specifically falling in love with a man when he was a late teen.

Jones spoke of the need for a high-profile Hollywood type to come out, and she pointed to Travolta to lead the way.

“A movie star. Like John Travolta? Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let’s do this,” Jones said, citing the many male massage therapists who have claimed Travolta has made advances toward them.

Jones tweeted her apology for the quote, saying she “made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta. I sincerely apologize. Nobody’s personal life is my business.”

While she shouldn’t have necessarily called out Travolta, she may be right about the need for a high-profile celebrity to come out, in order to give people the courage to do so as well.
