ScarJost is real, everyone.
"Saturday Night Live" Weekend Update co-anchor Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson were spotted making out at an SNL afterparty in May, but sources told E! News they have been hooking up since she hosted SNL back in March. And a "spy" spotted the new couple out together this past Saturday night on the Upper East Side. "They were really chill and super nice," the spy told Page Six. "They were holding hands and having drinks."
Colin Jost is a smart guy, so he's not likely to say anything that would ruin a good thing. Instead, he's in "light-hearted deflection" mode, as evidenced when E! News talked to him at the Hilarity for Charity's Third Annual New York City Variety Show. The reporter felt compelled to ask him about the romance rumors.
E!: "I just have to ask: Anything you want to set straight about your personal life?"
Colin Jost [laughing]: "No, no, I'm very happy."
E!: "OK, you know there's rumors and reports..."
Jost: "What?! No way," he joked.
E!: "Anything you want to set straight?"
Jost: "No, I'm good."
People also tried to get him to say something on the rumors, but he deflected by saying, "I don't really pay attention to it, I just kinda keep doing my life as much as I can. It's nice to have some time off now and just get to relax."
SNL isn't going to return until this fall, so Jost does have some free time to relax (and go out for more drinks). Meanwhile, Johansson's new movie "Rough Night" opens June 16.
