How did Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost meet?
Johansson and Jost met behind the scenes of SNL. Jost has been working on the show since 2005 (first as a writer and later as a cast member). Meanwhile, Johansson has hosted the show several times since 2006.
Johansson and Jost first encountered each other during her first time hosting SNL. He recalled in his memoir, A Very Punchable Face, that he was 20 and he was 23. However, while Johansson left a positive impression on him, he admitted that they had different levels of “status and maturity” at the time.
Johansson revealed that her first memory of Jost was in 2010 when she appeared in a sketch that he wrote.
“It was some dumb parody that he had written, and he was in there partly directing this segment we had to do,” Johansson told the Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
Johansson and Jost did not date until 2017 after she hosted SNL again that year. The couple later got engaged in May 2019.

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost try to keep their relationship private
Although Johansson and Jost have appeared at multiple events together and even made references to their relationship on SNL, they still try to be very discreet about their romance.
The Hollywood Reporter noted that Johansson and Jost still sometimes go on the subway in New York City with her daughter thanks to her insistence on maintaining her privacy.
“I insist upon it,” she shared. “You have to carve out that life for yourself. I don’t engage in social media. I’m a very private person. If you ever see a paparazzi photograph of me, know that I was definitely being harassed and having a horrible day, and my daughter was being harassed.”
