Scarlett Johansson joked in a new interview that “there’s no way” she would have dated her now-husband, Colin Jost, in high school. The “Black Widow” actress hilariously critiqued the “Saturday Night Live” star’s ’90s-era “mushroom cut” while appearing on “The Drew Barrymore Show” Wednesday. “I don’t think so, no,” Johansson, 37, responded when Drew Barrymore asked whether she would have been into Jost, 39, as a teenager.
“Firstly, my brother had that same haircut throughout the ’90s — both of my brothers — and I just can’t. There’s no way,” she continued as the talk show host, 47, showed the audience a yearbook photo of the comedian. “I mean, who decided on that cut as a stylish thing?” ScarJo asked. “What hairdresser was like, ‘I’ll try this’?”
Johansson and Jost got engaged in May 2019 after dating for two years and said their “I dos” in October 2020. The intimate wedding took place at the Oscar nominee’s home in Palisades, New York. They welcomed their first child together in August 2021 after managing to keep the pregnancy under wraps for eight months. Page Six exclusively broke the news that Johansson was expecting in July, just one month before she gave birth. “Ok ok we had a baby. His name is Cosmo. We love him very much,” Jost eventually conceded on Instagram.
Johansson is also mom to 7-year-old daughter Rose, whom she shares with ex-husband Romain Dauriac. The “Avengers: Endgame” star recently launched her skincare line The Outset and revealed Jost was very involved in the product testing.
“He’s the first partner I’ve ever had that uses an eye cream,” she said in an interview with InStyle earlier this month. However, the funnyman did not have the best experience with one particular face mask. “I forgot to tell Colin it was self-warming, and he thought he was having a really crazy allergic reaction to it,” Johansson said. “He was like, ‘It’s spread and it’s melting off my face!’ He was completely freaking out.”
