John Travolta made a complete mess of Idina Menzel's name during the Oscars on March 2, and the actor is finally speaking out about the now-hilarious incident.

Travolta mispronounced Menzel's name right before she was set to perform the Oscar-winning song "Let it Go" from Disney's "Frozen," calling her "Adele Dazeem." The incident has since gone viral, with the website Slate.com hosting a name generator where readers can "Travoltify" their own name.

John Travolta has nothing but praise for Oliver Stone, who directed him in "Savages," a new R-rated film that contains what the actor calls a "throwback" "menage a trois" three-way sexual relationship.

"He's terrific. He's a genius," Travolta said. "He wants you to do the best performance while he watches you like a hawk. Your performance is watched, every word, every cadence and he really forces you to do your best work and then you come up with the things he paid you for, which is your own interpretation. He wants that too. He definitely wants that. He's quite brilliant."
