Who knew Rashida Jones had such a sassy streak?

The Parks and Recreation star caused a firestorm yesterday for taking a surprising jab at John Travolta's much-speculated-about sexual orientation as well as his recent massage controversy.

While promoting her new movie Celeste and Jesse Forever, Jones said in an interview with SpinningPlatters.com that she'd love to see a big movie star come out of the closet as gay. "Like John Travolta?" the 36-year-old daughter of music legend Quincy Jones suggested. "Come out! Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let's do this."

However, Jones took to Twitter this morning to say she was sorry. "Made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta," she tweeted. "I sincerely apologize. Nobody's personal life is my business."

In the same interview, Jones praised Frank Ocean for coming out.

"Because with someone like Frank Ocean, yes, it's fantastic that he did what he did and his letter was so beautiful, and he's in such close proximity to all these rappers so he's battling homophobia just by being honest," she said. "But big stars need to come out. Ricky Martin was huge. That was big; I was really happy about that."
