Who Has Scarlett Johansson Dated?

Scarlett Johansson recently got engaged to Saturday Night Live comedian Colin Jost. Once they walk down the aisle, Jost will be Johansson’s third husband.

From writers to top-notch celebrities, Scarlett has dated around. But, her love life has always been pretty secretive. Her previous marriages were small, private events and the star keeps off of social media claiming that she simply doesn’t get it.

Nate Naylor:One of the only non-celebrities, Scarlett has ever dated is the New York-based advertising director Nate Naylor. The two had a relationship spanning most of 2012. But, part of their issues, Scarlett told People was that it “must be very strange for him … I mean, it’s got to be an adjustment,” dealing with paparazzi following them around and juggling her celebrity status. 

Scarlett Johansson’s celebrity boyfriends

Josh Hartnett: In 2005, Scarlett briefly dated her handsome Black Dahlia costar, Josh Hartnett. The swoon-worthy actor later told the press that although they had a fun relationship together, and he truly liked Scarlett, their schedules simply didn’t align for a long term relationship.  

Sean Penn: Scarlett briefly dated actor Sean Penn, who was nearly double her age at the time. After a five-month relationship, which included a romantic trip to Mexico, the couple ended things just as quickly as they began.

Scarlett Johansson’s rumored boyfriends

Justin Timberlake: She’s often been spotted being pretty chummy with some of her male co-stars, which of course, leads to speculations about her romantic interests. For instance, there were rumors that Scarlett was dating Justin Timberlake after she starred in one of his music videos. Nothing was ever confirmed by either star. 

Jared Leto: Scarlett was spotted holding hands with Jared Leto in 2012, while she was dating ad exec Naylor, but her PR Rep assured the press that the pair were just close friends. This comes after their 2004 relationship, which although they never confirmed publicly, the two spent that year together much of the time.

Scarlett Johannson’s previous marriages

Ryan Reynolds: Scarlett was married to our favorite anti-hero, Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds, for two years before they divorced in December 2010. It seems that distance and their busy careers were the catalysts in their split, although Ryan is the one who filed for divorce. The couple has always kept their relationship out of the public eye. They even kept their small, Canadian wedding private, by saying their vows in a remote location near Ryan’ Vancouver roots.

Romain Dauriac: Scarlett’s second marriage to French journalist Romain Dauriac is equally secretive. They started dating in October of 2012 and Scarlett was spotted with a new engagement ring by the following September. The couple married in a quiet ceremony in 2014 right after the birth of their only daughter, Rose. After two years together, though, Scarlett filed for divorce, making the issues of their private marriage suddenly very public. She asked for custody of their young daughter and indicated that she wouldn’t talk about their marriage problems to the press. 

Scarlett Johansson’s recent engagement

Scarlett has always been very vocal about her opinions on marriage. Vanity Fair reports that Scarlett told Playboy she wasn’t even sure monogamy was something that human beings were capable of but also mentions her love of the idea of marriage when she told them: “I think the idea of marriage is very romantic; it’s a beautiful idea, and the practice of it can be a very beautiful thing.”

Her engagement to Jost comes after two years of dating. The couple seems very much in love since their first appearance together in 2017, and they were recently spotted at the premiere of Scarlett’s AvengersEndgame.
