Colin Jost Shares What Made Him Fall in Love with Scarlett Johansson

Colin Jost recently opened up about the qualities that made him fall in love with his wife, Scarlett Johansson. In an interview with The New York Times on July 13, the Saturday Night Live star, 42, shared his admiration for the Avengers actress, 39, highlighting her exceptional qualities as a mother.

“I think part of the reason I fell in love with her is she’s a great mom,” Jost revealed. The couple, who married in October 2020, share a 2-year-old son, Cosmo. Johansson also has a 9-year-old daughter, Rose Dorothy, from her previous marriage to Romain Dauriac.

“I’ve known Rose, my stepdaughter, since she was 2,” Jost said. “It’s weird. You get to actually preview someone as a mom.”

Johansson, known for her role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, mentioned that her daughter Rose is too scared to watch her Marvel movies. “She likes that I play Black Widow, but she’s too scared to watch an Avengers movie,” Johansson told media outlets. “She’s just like, ‘It’s violent.’ I’m like, ‘Oh God.’”

However, Rose is excited about her mom’s latest film, Fly Me to The Moon. “I think she’s excited about the hair and makeup mostly,” Johansson said. “It’s just so fun… She’s girly.”

In a special treat for fans, Jost makes a cameo in Fly Me to The Moon in a hilarious scene. Johansson shared that director Greg Berlanti personally requested Jost for the part. “[He] was like, ‘Do you think Colin would want to do…?’ Greg and Colin, they have a great rapport and they’re both comedy writers. So I think he just really was excited to have Colin come and do a cameo. I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m sure if you ask him, I’m not going to ask him,’ ” Johansson said.

Reflecting on their collaboration, Johansson noted, “We don’t get to work together really ever because… I mean, we’ve worked together as he’s written stuff for me for SNL, but we never get to perform together.”

Their mutual admiration and support for each other, both personally and professionally, clearly shine through, making their partnership a blend of love, family, and shared creative endeavors.
