Scarlett Johansson gushes about Colin Jost’s ‘James Bond situation’ proposal

World premiere of 'Avengers: Endgame'

Scarlett Johansson is 34 years old and about to get married for the third time. And it’s fine – as I’ve said before, I expect that of her. Twenty years from now, she’ll probably have three more marriages under her belt. It’s one of the things I legitimately like about Scarlett: she goes through phases where she’s obsessed with some weird dude, she’ll sometimes marry them, and then after a year or two, it’s on to the next phase/dude. She did “marry a weird sockless French dude” and that blew up in her face. Now she’s in the “marry an SNL bro” phase. By 2021, this phase will be over. But for now, we just have to enjoy it, and enjoy the many gushing stories about Colin Jost’s “romantic” proposal:

Looks like Colin Jost has a few tricks up his sleeve. Scarlett Johansson and the Saturday Night Live funnyman recently got engaged, and the actress told Ellen DeGeneres that Jost “killed it” when proposing with “a whole James Bond situation.”

“It was surprising, he’s got a lot behind that news desk he’s hiding,” Johansson said, referring to Jost’s job as Weekend Update host. “He’s very charming and very thoughtful and romantic. But yeah, I was surprised. Even if you kind of imagine what that moment’s gonna be like, it’s still beautiful moment.”

Johannson, 34, and Jost, 37, became engaged in May after two years of dating. The Avengers: Endgame star debuted her 11-carat engagement ring in July while taking the stage at San Diego Comic-Con for her upcoming Black Widow prequel film. “It was very personal. It was a special moment,” Johansson added of the proposal. “I think, more than anything, when someone tells you they want to spend their life with you, that’s a lovely, special thing.”

“He’s got a lot behind that news desk he’s hiding…” Does he though? I’m really asking. Jost has the reputation as a smart guy, but he also has a reputation as a total bro who veers towards sexism. I wouldn’t think he’s capable of planning some James Bond-esque proposal, nor would I have thought that ScarJo would be into that. But, as I said, it’s just a phase. Also: the proposal must have been amazing for Scarlett to say yes to this fugtastic engagement ring.

    I actually like her ring, but agree with everything else you said about both her, and Colin.

    • Stacy Dresden says:

      I like the ring also

    • EveV says:

      I can see why it wouldn’t appeal to everybody, but I think it’s pretty cool looking, myself. Especially since she is on her third engagement, why not do something that’s different?

  3. jenner says:

    I am less and less interested in her…

    • Raina says:

      That’s his desk? I thought he was just happy to see me.

      And this is not an insult regarding her level of attractiveness but something about her face bugs tf out of me and I don’t know why exactly.

  4. Jay (the Canadian one) says:

    What’s a James Bond proposal exactly? As I recall the only time James Bond proposed his wife was dead before the honeymoon.

  5. Ann says:

    Holy cow that ring is so ugly. A big gaudy diamond on a black band? Am I seeing this right? Surely it can’t be that ugly? But it is.

  6. Maria says:

    Her defense of Woody Allen is the nail in the coffin for me. Despise her.

  7. Tiffany says:

    So after this marriage ends, is her next relationship going to be with a tree.

  8. Mia4s says:

    “…Jost “killed it” when proposing”

    Well she’d be a good judge, it is her third one after all. 😏

    • tealily says:

      I’m trying to remember who the other one was (not the sockless French guy) and I’m coming up blank.

      • Mia4s says:

        Ryan Reynolds! Yep she was the first Mrs. Deadpool before Blake Lively. That was her starter marriage. She was 24, he was 32.

      • tealily says:

        Ohhhhhh riiiiiiiight duuuuhhhhh. I completely forgot that happened, but I had the vague impression it was a more famous person.

  9. minx says:

    Can’t stand this woman. And her ring is hideous.

  10. Meg says:

    ‘hes got a lot behind that desk he’s hiding’
    I realize after this she described intangible qualities he had but my first thought was she was saying something about his manhood. And I don’t think he’d mind her saying that publicly about him at all because He’s marrying her for the bragging rights, I honestly feel that vibe from him

  11. tealily says:

    You guys! For as ehhhhh as I am about Scarlett Johansson, I just saw Jojo Rabbit and I thought she was fantastic in it. She gave a really charming and nuanced performance. Who knew she could act??

  12. Sam says:

    Didnt she go on a rant against monogamy after she and Frenchie split? Now some dork who had her as his college screensaver wants to make the frat bros jealous.

  13. huncamunca says:

    That ring is the ugliest I’ve ever seen.

  14. Jb says:

    I wonder if she ranks her proposals… if I was a host I’d be like so who was your favorite? Any advice for husband 4???

  15. CAVandy says:

    she definitely picked out that ring or told him she liked that kind of ring

    NFW he came up w that on his own
