Scarlett Johansson & Colin Jost got married, ask for donations to Meals on Wheels

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost are married! Good for them, I guess. As I was trying to figure out what I was going to say about this one, I suddenly remembered the engagement ring Colin gave Scarlett when he proposed in May 2019: a brown diamond with a black/brown setting. It was so bad that people were in denial that this was her actual engagement ring and not some borrowed cocktail ring. But no, he really proposed with an egg-shaped brown diamond in a weird setting. I feel certain that Scarlett picked it out herself – it was, after all, her third marriage, and she had already done the simple round diamond solitaire (Ryan Reynolds) and the vintage Art Deco ring (Romain). A third marriage is for… something unusual. I guess! Anyway, to throw yourself a Covid wedding is, I imagine, pretty fraught. It sounds like Colin and Scar kept things pretty simple though, and they gave their news to a great charity so the charity could announce it:

Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost have officially said, “I do.” The couple tied the knot in an intimate ceremony over the weekend, the Instagram account for Meals on Wheels America announced on Thursday.

“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 [loved] ones, following COVID-19 safety precautions as directed by the CDC. Their wedding wish is to help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time by supporting @mealsonwheelsamerica. Please consider donating to celebrate the happy couple by clicking the link in our bio,” the post read.

I would imagine they kept the guest list small and I would imagine they did it in the Hamptons. They stay in the Hamptons a lot, and I think they’ve spent much of 2020 there, like many New Yorkers looking to escape the pandemic. And I don’t know… like, ScarJo is an a–hole, 100%, but it was a nice move to give away the wedding announcement to Meals on Wheels.

    Jost married! How cute

  2. lola says:

    Third time’s the charm?! How “long” do we think it will last?

    It was nice to shine a light on Meals for Wheels, but I will still never like either of them.

    • Mia4s says:

      She’s been pretty good at being engaged, not so much at staying married. So “we shall see” is a pretty fair position.

      It is always good to support your local Meals on Wheels in any event. This is an interesting trend. They are at least the third celebrity couple to give news to a charity as an awareness/donation raiser. I find it super-awkward, but if it works? What the hell! 🤷‍♀️

    • Congrats says:

      Love that they put a light on meals on wheels, but, I’m from the school of Meghan Markle, so I’m used to tangible actions as well as highlighting charities. I can’t help but think that if they had provided “Meals” with a photo, they also would have received lots of money from image rights… although I’m sure they’ve donated

      But congrats to her ❤️… also, why is she an a$$-hole? I’m about to do a deep dive

      • lola says:

        She thinks she’s entitled to play any character she wants. She played an Asian role (Ghost in the Shell), and wanted to play a Transgender man and got pissed when she got called out for it.
        And she’s best friends with Woody Allen. Wants to work with him again, and is all about believing women except Dylan Farrow.

    • Jegede says:

      @lola – All you said.👍👍

  3. GR says:

    I get the impression that they’re both kind of smug a-holes, but I do like that they supported this charity.

  4. Silver Charm says:

    I’m honestly surprised they went through with it?

  5. phaedra says:

    That. Ring. [shudder] But good on them for giving Meals on Wheels the publicity.

    • BeanieBean says:

      And how do you pair a wedding band with that? And agreed, good on them, it’s a great charity at any time, and especially now.

  6. B says:

    Wow, 3 marriages at 35? Good luck with that…

    • Jenn says:

      Well, she was rather young when she married Ryan Reynolds — especially compared to his 31, at the time — and that was his rebound relationship from Alanis Morissette. I don’t think every marriage that ends in divorce is necessarily a “mistake,” but that particular marriage always seemed like it was.

    • E.D. says:

      3 marriages is a lot for us peasants but I always think because wealthy actors have no financial problems, it’s just so much easier for them to move on emotionally than the rest of us.

      As an Australian I had zero clue who Colin Joost was when he started dating ScarJo but I did listen to him being interviewed on Dax Sheppard’s podcast and I was surprised by how quick-witted and how self-depricating he was. He seemed very mindful of not milking her celebrity status. I don’t mind these 2 at all.

  7. Lee says:

    Nice of them to support this charity!

  8. Darla says:

    Wonderful to support Meals on Wheels, so many desperate housebound people out there right now. And I can’t stand diamond engagement rings of any kind, so I really didn’t find this one as bad as everyone else.

  9. Case says:

    I honestly didn’t think they’d end up getting married. I wish them the best, and good for them for using this to shed light on a good cause.

    • Julie says:

      She literally said marriage wasn’t for her, so you were justified. I’m guessing they’re adapting their concept of marriage to accommodate her issues with it. Maybe an open marriage or maybe not living together or maybe just disposing the gender roles.

    • LillyfromLillooet says:

      Ditto to all this. Jost’s personal life before ScarJo was publicly MIA, and I admit to being SO CURIOUS as to what his type was. That’s why his taking up with ScarJo seemed random and like she would tire of him after a while, because he’s a no-drama-low-emotion-presenting blank slate, she seems like romantic drama and emotional appetite on wheels.

      I am sure his people were concerned about ScarJo’s track record, but I think he fell for her, she for him, and they have been together for a while, so their dynamic is working for them. It is hard to picture them still together 10, 20 years from now, sure, but you just never ever know. Wish them well.

  10. Sarah says:

    This doesn’t change my (poor) opinion of them or major dislike of the ring but it makes me happy that a charity of getting attention from this. I hope that leads to more donations and support for them.

  11. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    That ring is like the jewelry equivalent to clear shoes. And clear shoes make me dry heave.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      💯 agree. That ring is a mess. Clear shoes…also a mess.

      • Chris says:

        The description of the ring sounded awful, but it did not prepare me for how hideous it really is.

    • JanetDR says:

      It seems like the top of the stone is vulnerable to getting caught/stuck/snagging as well as not being very attractive, but to each their own!

  12. lucy2 says:

    Not really a fan of either, but I do really like how they used the news to promote a very worthy charity.
    I hope they did keep the wedding small and safe. A couple of people I know have gotten married recently, and just do an outdoor wedding with only a few guests, and then will do a reception someday when it’s safe to gather.

  13. jbyrdku says:

    My dad was my mom’s third marriage, and they’ve been together for 39 years this past May. You just never know, kids.

  14. Daphne says:

    I actually like the ring. It looks like a piece of abstract modern art. Givenchy’s son or nephew designed it I believe. I’ll take this any day over a blinding diamond with three rings of pave circled around it on a platinum setting. I wish more people would go for alternative style rings than the societal mainstream “must have a diamond on platinum.’’ It is refreshing.

    • Snazzy says:

      I really like it too! I know it’s unusual but it’s one of the only celeb engagement rings I actually like. The rest are all various versions of the same

    • Khia says:

      The ring is beautiful. Givenchy nephew did a nice job. Congrats to them and Meals on Wheels is awesome too.

    • L4frimaire says:

      Looking at it now, it actually looks pretty cool. I like it and doesn’t look as weird as I remember.

  15. Melissai says:

    Meals on Wheels was a lifesaver for my grandparents, 20 years ago. And they continue to provide an excellent service. Now more than ever. I’ve been donating monthly to them. As for these 2 newlyweds- I feel very meh about them.

  16. Amelie says:

    While I don’t expect this marriage to last too long given Scarlett’s track record (she never seems to stay in a relationship beyond a year or two and seems easily bored), I think the way they announced it with the Staten Island Ferry encouraging people to donate to Meals on Wheels was the right way to do it.

    Scarlett was so young when she married Ryan Reynolds that that was never going to last. And then she married the French guy most likely because she got pregnant with him and that seemed like the right thing to do. I don’t think she’s ever had a huge wedding though with the white dress and 300 guests so I’ll give her credit for not being a diva bride.

  17. LeonsMomma says:

    She is just like her character in “VickiCristinaBarcelona”—shallow and dumb. Jost is so bland. So the perfect couple!

    That said, happy they highlighted Meals in Wheels.

  18. Queen Meghan’s Hand says:

    She will break his heart but maybe he’ll stick through it until she leaves him for another well-pedigreed brunette.

    Congrats to Jost on his first marriage!!!

  19. Sorella says:

    On to her 3rd marriage and not even 40?! Sounds like the problem is with her. Considering some of her peers are just getting married for the first time lol. She’s like the LIz Taylor or her peer group. I don’t think this one will last either.

  20. L4frimaire says:

    I can’t really judge her on her 3rd marriage before 40, since I have people in my family on their 3rd marriages relatively young as well. They took their time. She seems extra and has foot in mouth disease a lot, but he’s seems low key enough, a bit wonky and preppy. Happy for them if they’re happy, especially in these pandemic times.

  21. Sequinedheart says:

    I find them to be such a strange combo.
    And I don’t find him interesting/funny at all. Just another bland white dude celebrated for existing.

    • Juju says:

      He’s actually not that bland and highly educated. I’m actually wondering what he wants with her or what they have in common.

  22. A Fan says:

    Well, she’s not afraid of commitment!

    [*And, I don't mind the ring.*]

  23. Juju says:

    I can’t help but think that this will be her third divorce. It’s her third time. Why not wait longer than two or three years if you have that many failed marriages?
