Scarlett Johansson Marries Comedian Colin Jost In An Intimate Ceremony

The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony over the weekend, the Instagram account for Meals on Wheels America announced on Thursday.

“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. Their wedding wish is to help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time by supporting @mealsonwheelsamerica.

Johansson and Jost got engaged in May 2019 after two years of dating. The two-time Oscar nominee debuted her 11-carat engagement ring in July while taking the stage at San Diego Comic-Con for her upcoming Black Widow prequel film.

Meals on Wheels is an organization that fights hunger and isolation in the senior citizen community by providing meals across the country.

In October, Johansson told Ellen DeGeneres that Jost “killed it” when proposing with “a whole James Bond situation.”

“It was surprising — he’s got a lot behind that news desk he’s hiding,” she joked, referring to Jost’s job as Weekend Update host on SNL. “He’s very charming and very thoughtful and romantic. But yeah, I was surprised. Even if you kind of imagine what that moment’s gonna be like, it’s still a beautiful moment.”

The marriage is the first for Jost, while Johansson has been married twice: to actor Ryan Reynolds from September 2008 to December 2010, as well as to Romain Dauriac from 2014 to 2017, with whom she shares Rose Dorothy Dauriac.

In May of last year, a source told PEOPLE that the pair (who made their public debut as a couple in November 2017) had bonded over having a similar sense of humor — particularly their shared love of sarcasm.

Scarlett likes Colin’s sarcasm and wit,” the insider said of the Avengers: Endgame star and Jost. “They share a love for acerbic humor and outrage at social issues gone bad. They have much in common.”
