Scarlett Johansson is still torn between two lovers, Colin Jost & Kevin Yorn

"Rough Night" New York Premiere

In “Who cares as long as she’s happy” news, Scarlett Johansson is not only successfully swimming in, but pretty much ruling the dating pool. The 32-year-old actress, who split from husband Romain Dauriac last year, has had some pretty high-profile dates since joining the ranks of “single and ready to mingle-dom.” Back in May, she hooked up with Saturday Night Live writer/performer Colin Jost at one of the show’s infamous after parties. Most people viewed it as two people just having fun, but the pair were spotted smooching at a swanky party in the Hamptons just this past Saturday night. Could this be more than a fling?

In addition to spending time with Colin, Scarlett has spent some time in her social calendar with her attorney, Kevin Yorn. Scarlett was first spotted holding hands with Kevin in June. Since then, they’ve been spotted out together, but their relationship isn’t very cut and dried. A source told People that even though the two are “openly dating people,” there are some mutual feelings that “haven’t fizzled” between them. Will these feelings evolve into something more? According to the source, that’s not likely. “[Yorn’s] not ‘the one’ for her or anything like that. They genuinely enjoy each other’s company and that will never change.”

Even though their relationship can safely be described as complicated, the two still make time for each other. Says the (chatty) source, “They’re still seeing each other but are busy and have a lot of commitments, so when they get moments of time, that’s when they make the effort to see each other outside of their work exchanges.” But, whatever they’re doing, don’t call it dating, as “Dating wouldn’t be the right word for their current status.” Kevin has pretty much plead the fifth on his relationship with Scarlett, keeping “very quiet about it among friends and colleagues because of how it may appear on the outside.”

After my divorce, I was dating a few guys at the same time, there’s nothing wrong with it if everybody’s on board – especially since it doesn’t look like anyone is in the market for a serious thing. It sure appears that Scarlett’s not hiding either relationship, so I can only assume this love triangle is sanctioned by all parties. There’s plenty of time to settle down, so sow those oats, Miss Scarlett.

    Well…’s alright for some.

  2. Dorothy#1 says:

    Good for her!

    But I hate her hair. I wish she would grow it out!

  3. M. says:

    Wonder how long it will be before she’s married again…and divorced

  4. Lotusgoat says:

    I wish this was more widely accepted. There shouldn’t be a problem with dating multiple people – how else are you supposed to figure out what you want?

    Teenage years would have been far less tumultuous if I hadn’t been a serial monogamist.

  5. Jess says:

    Do your thang and have some fun! She’s young and has been married twice, she needs to play the field and have fun for now.

  6. Cleo says:

    I can’t believe she’s only 32. Not because she looks older but just because she’s been around so long.

    I’ll believe ScarJost is happening when we finally get a picture of them at one of these swanky parties they’ve been attending all summer…

  7. Beth says:

    Her hairstylist should be ashamed

    • dowdowdowd says:

      I know.. Her attempts at desexualising herself have been successful, that haircut does NOTHING for her features.

  8. Canadian Becks says:

    Torn between a Jost and a Yorn.

    Anyone remember that really catchy 80′s tune:

    Torn between 2 lovers
    Feeling like a fool
    Loving both of you is breaking all the rules…

  9. HeatherAnn says:

    Must be her former attorney. Unethical for lawyers to sleep with their clients. :)

  10. Rice says:

    Good for you, Ms. Romanov!

  11. Cami says:

    It’s good that Scarlett comfortable having more than one lover. Men do it all the time. I’m just curious why she seems to be advertising it with pap pics. She has no new movies or anything to promote where she would need some publicity. She should just do her thing and enjoy and leave it at that!

  12. tracking says:

    It’s called dating. More power to her!

  13. Scout says:

    I have this really ridiculous theory that she is actually with Jost but the other guy is helping her with making it seem low-key while she is going through a bit of a nasty divorce. He has been one of her closest friends for years (and her lawyer) so it seems odd that they would blur the lines of their relationship and put that established and seemingly important friendship at risk only for it to go nowhere.

    • Ally says:

      That’s a great theory! Makes a lot of sense.

      She really has a type: Reynolds, the Frenchman and Jost all have that same slightly cro-magnon frat boy look.

    • Valois says:

      Wouldn’t it seem better (considering her divorce) if she appeared to be dating Jost and only Jost instead of several people at the same time? I don’t see the benefit of that.
      And why would the lawyer risk his reputation?
      Also, her and her husband have been seen together, seems they’ve been trying to work through their divorce in a civil way for a while.

      • Scout says:

        No, because if she was just dating Jost there would be a concentrated focus on the progression of their relationship and snide (and misogynistic) commentary about how she filed for divorce the same day she was in rehearsals for SNL, Jost’s show that he both performs on and writes for. His career has never been hotter – his WU may not be necessarily popular but Loren has invested major money into him and Che, even going so far as to have 3 spin-off specials starring the in a month alone, and SNL is back to being the most talked about television show. As for the lawyer, I don’t see how it would harm his reputation. They refer to him as her lawyer but his connection to her is actually through his younger brother, Pete Yorn, who is her long time best friend and musical collaborator, and his other brother who is her manager. Kevin (the lawyer) is one of the most powerful lawyers in Hollywood – his reputation will never be compromised.

        As for her ex – they are in the middle of an international custody dispute where he has publicly criticized her work schedule for doing harm to their daughter. That isn’t an amicable situation.

      • Valois says:

        Okay, I get your point now, even though I’m still not buying it.
        Frankly, I don’t think ScarJo is that relevant from a gossip pov anymore that there would be a concentrated focus on her and Jost. And even if I’m wrong on that one, I still don’t believe that her dating several guys at the same time (which is obviously totally fine) would lead to less misogynistic commentary than her dating Jost, especially because her husband and her had been over for a while at that point.

        I know he has criticized her work schedule etc, but they’ve been seen together after that and made sure they got papped while doing so. I remember Lainey thinking that this was them demonstrating a somehwat more united front and it made sense to me.

        Again, I get your pov and you could be totally right. Personally, I think it’s a bot too out there though.

    Jared Leto, Sean Penn, Colin Jost… Could this woman’s taste in men be any WORSE?

  15. themummy says:

    I just came here to say that I absolutely HATE her hair. She has insisted on this hairstyle for years now and it’s so ugly and it actually makes her look odd and ugly (and she’s actually freaking gorgeous!). I know this is a superficial comment, but I just hate this hair so much. It does not look good. I can’t help my superficiality on this. Ugly!
