Why We’re ROTFL At Colin Jost & Scarlett Johansson’s Wedding Save The Date

A-list celebrities are not exactly known for being “chill”, but this save the date is one million times more chill than anything that touches my wedding will ever be. Not that I’m engaged or even close to getting married…but you know. 

In case you live under a rock and didn’t know, SNL writer Colin Jost and A-list actress Scarlett Johansson are engaged! And we’re spilling the MAJOR TEA (I kind of hate when people say “tea” because it’s so predictable but it felt right) with their wedding save the date:


As I believe I’ve complained mentioned before, the rich time and time again have proved that they can literally get away with anything. If an ACTUAL non-wealthy person who ACTUALLY needed to save money for their wedding sent this out, methinks it might not go over so well. But since we all know how rich these two actually are, this wedding save the date is “funny” and “cute”.  

I guess ScarJo HAS been married twice before, so I can see how a third might be a smidge expensive. But this save the date is another level. Although come to think of it, Colin Jost is also a writer on Saturday Night Live – aka a kickass comedian. So maybe this is a joke? And I’m the loser for making fun of it? You tell me.

In honor of the most special notecard to have ever existed, and because we will not be receiving one ourselves, let’s fill that void by taking a look back at their romance and how it blossomed:

November 2010: first meeting

ScarJo (do you like how I keep saying ‘ScarJo’ like we’re best friends because her name is way too long and complicated to type out?) acted in one of his skits. It was a “16 & Pregnant” parody. 

“It was some dumb parody that he had written, and he was in there partly directing this segment we had to do,” Johansson told The Hollywood Reporter in 2019.

“That’s my first memory of him. He seemed very confident at the time. I don’t know if he felt that way, but in that environment, if you’re not confident as a writer, your stuff just never gets produced,” she explained. 

May 2017: cast party 


DANCE FLOOR MAKEOUT! According to Page Six, the two made out “multiple times” at an SNL cast party. Ooooo! So I don’t have to feel guilty for being 26 and still doing that, too? Awesome. 

EXCLUSIVE SCOOP: Around this time I also saw them on the Upper East Side leaving a hotel (Or maybe it was one of their apartments? Unsure) together!! They were holding hands and I was like, wait – is that that guy from SNL with Scarlett Johansson?!?! They were looking very dapper and seemed very happy. 

July 2017: dating

Colin and ScarJo were seen in the Hamptons on multiple dates this month. Next time I go on a third date I will insist I am taken to the Hamptons instead of the usual gross dive bar with sh*tty vodka. Seems fair to me.

September 2017: Jost attends Emmy’s alone

…buuut it was only because ScarJo was working, according to Colin. During an interview on the red carpet, he said, “She’s pretty cool. It’s hard to have a lot of complaints … she’s pretty awesome.” CUTE!

November 2017: first public appearance as a couple

They came to the 2017 American Museum of Natural History Gala as a couple and Vogue reported on it. 

May 2018: Met Gala

They attended the Met Gala together. Looking fresh AF. 


September 2018: Michael Che comments on their relationship

When SNL comedians Michael Che and Colin Jost were on Ellen, Che said that Jost has “changed a lot since” he started dating Johansson. “You don’t invite me places,” Che said, “and when you do, you ditch me.” Jost says Che has “never invited” him anywhere, with Che explaining that he believed Jost probably had “better things to do” that are Johansson-related than “come to this dive bar with me and watch a Yankees game.”

Aw. Kinda sad for Che. But great for Colin that him and ScarJo are still going strong! 

May 2019: engaged 

ScarJo’s publicist announced that the two are ENGAGED! And the ring is insane, estimated to be worth $450,000. Cool, same. Have a look for yourself. 


December 2019: ScarJo calls Colin the “love of my life”

ScarJo hosted SNL and ended her monologue with a reallyyyy sweet but also extremely awkward moment. She calls Colin the “love of my life” and they kiss. Colin is kinda blushing and being awkward – as anyone would be getting hit with a surprise like that on national TV – but I couldn’t help but cringe a little while still being like, “awwww!”. Watch it here

Cheers to the happy couple and their cheap AF save the dates!!!

I shared this on too!
