Colin Jost hit the red carpet on Sunday night in blue velvet blazer for the 2017 Emmy Awards. While the SNL cast member isn't often the center of celebrity gossip, he found himself having to talk about rumors that have been circulating for the past few months. During his chat with Entertainment Tonight's Lauren Zima at the Emmys, it appears that Jost confirmed he's dating Scarlett Johansson.
"You're rumored to be dating a very lovely blonde," Zima said without naming any names. Jost didn't say Johansson's name either, however, he certainly did not deny that they're together. "She's wonderful. She's working," he said of his rumored girlfriend. "so otherwise, she'd be here."
After Jost indulged Zima's question, she completely went for it and asked the Weekend Update anchor why Johhansson was the one for him. "She's pretty cool... It's hard to have a lot of complaints, she's pretty awesome...the first time she hosted the first year I was a writer on the show, so we've kind of known each other since then. She's the best."
It seems like love is definitely in the air for these two. Johansson just finalized her divorce from her second husband, so we totally understand why they're keepings things out of the spotlight for now.
