Scarlett Johansson gets hitched with comedian Colin Jost
LOS ANGELES (US) – “Black Widow” star Scarlett Johansson has married her “Saturday Night Live” fiance, Colin Jost, which was a low-key ceremony.
News about the wedding was announced on Thursday by the charity Meals on Wheels, according to whom the couple were supporting them to help elderly people during the pandemic.
Meals on Wheels America said on its Instagram account, “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.”
“Their wedding wish is to help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time,” the charity said, asking fans of the couple to make a donation.
Johansson’s representative confirmed the news.
Johansson and Jost, a writer and comedian on television sketch show “Saturday Night Live,” started dating about three years ago. They got engaged in May 2019.
It is the first marriage for Jost, 38, and for Johansson, 35, it is the third. She was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds and French businessman Romain Dauriac, with whom she has a daughter.
From playing the Black Widow in comic book movies “Iron Man 2” and the “Avengers” franchise to independent fare like 2019’s “Marriage Story,” for which she received an Oscar nomination, Johansson has essayed an array of roles.
The standalone movie “Black Widow” is expected to be released in May 2021.
