“It was some dumb parody that he had written, and he was in there partly directing this segment we had to do,” Johansson recalled to The Hollywood Reporter in 2019.
“That’s my first memory of him. He seemed very confident at the time. I don’t know if he felt that way, but in that environment, if you’re not confident as a writer, your stuff just never gets produced,” she added.
Just two months before, People magazine reported that Johansson had filed for divorce from her second husband, journalist Romain Dauriac — she was previously married to “Deadpool” actor Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011.
As for Jost, his relationship with “Parks and Recreation” actress Rashida Jones had ended.
The two reportedly showed some PDA at the cast party. Page Six reported from “multiple sources” that the two “made out at least twice … at the bar in front of everyone.”
He said “she’s wonderful” but that “she’s working, so otherwise she would be here.” “She’s pretty cool,” he continued. “It’s hard to have a lot of complaints … she’s pretty awesome.”
Jost also revealed that they actually first met back in 2006 when Scarlett Johansson first hosted “SNL” during his first year as a writer for the show, before he landed the “Weekend Update” role and became a head writer.
“They’re very much in love. It’s serious,” the unnamed source told People. “They’re both very respectful of each other’s careers and very supportive. They’re super cute together.”
Earlier that day, Johansson appeared on “Ellen” joking that it was “hard to pick” her favorite “Weekend Update” anchor, before confirming that she was “a Colin fan.”
“I’m not gay,” Jost replied, “I told you I have a girlfriend!”
Che joked that he doesn’t feel left out because he’s in a relationship with “the Times Square Elmo” and mentioned that Jost has “changed a lot since” he started dating Johansson.
“You don’t invite me places,” Che said, “and when you do, you ditch me.”
Jost countered saying that Che has “never invited” him anywhere, with Che explaining that he believed Jost probably had “better things to do” that are Johansson-related than “come to this dive bar with me and watch a Yankees game.”
Johansson and Jost walked the carpet together and Jost co-hosted the show with “Saturday Night Live’s” Michael Che.
“This place means so much to me. I have so many friends here and I met the love of my life here,” she said, hugging Jost and giving him a kiss.
The organization shared an Instagram post of the Staten Island Ferry with cans tied to it and “Just Married” on the top, writing:
“We’re thrilled to break the news that Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost were married over the weekend in an intimate ceremony with their immediate family and love ones, following COVID-19 safety precautions as directed by the CDC … “
