Frozen star Idina Menzel has said she is buddies with John Travolta following his Oscars mistake which saw him introduce her as 'Adele Dazeem.'

The 42-year-old Broadway star told Billboard that he sent her flowers to apologise for his faux pas, "He [Travolta] was really gracious and sent this gorgeous email, and we're buddies and it's all cool."

Menzel added that being introduced by the wrong name did throw her, but that she's only benefited from the incident, "That threw me for a minute, but then I just got back on track and reminded myself of where I was... I mean, I've only benefited from it."

Days after the awards show Travolta released a statement about the accident saying, "I've been beating myself up all day. Then I thought, what would Idina Menzel say? She'd say, 'Let it go, let it go!' Idina is incredible talented and I am so happy Frozen took home two Oscars Sunday night!"
