Scarlett Johansson is almost every girl’s favourite Hollywood starlet. Last year, news about her engagement to fiancé Colin Jost made headlines, with her big-sized diamond ring being the talk of the town. Every media outlet was publishing articles about the light brown, 11-carat blingy ring that was reportedly priced at $400,000. And now, a little over a year later, their wedding is grabbing eyeballs everywhere! The duo tied the knot in an intimate ceremony. The announcement was made by the charity Meals on Wheels, which said the newlyweds were supporting the group’s efforts to help the elderly during the coronavirus pandemic.
“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,” Meals on Wheels America said on its Instagram account. “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 and got engaged in May 2019. It is the first marriage for Jost, 38, and the third for Johansson, 35, who was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds and French businessman Romain Dauriac, with whom she has a daughter. Johansson is one of the world’s highest-paid actresses, courtesy her stellar performances in Black Widow, Iron Man 2 and the Avengers franchise among many others. She also gained popularity for her role in 2019’s Marriage Story, for which she received an Oscar nomination. The standalone movie Black Widow is expected to be released in May 2021.
