NEW YORK -- After Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson tied the knot in an intimate ceremony last fall, the couple found a heartfelt way to tell the world they were “Jost married.”
“Scarlett wanted to figure out a way of doing something that had another kind of meaning or could potentially help in some way,” Jost recently told The Associated Press while promoting his latest film, “Tom and Jerry.”
The co-anchor of the “Weekend Update” segment at “Saturday Night Live” says the couple wanted to make a difference with their happy news.
In his latest film, a new version of "Tom and Jerry” that combines animation with live action, Jost plays a groom in an elaborate high-profile wedding at a ritzy hotel.
Filmed before his own nuptials, Jost picked up a little something from the experience.
“My character obviously is going overboard in an attempt to both please his bride and impress her father,” Jost said. “Learning about communication and trying to anticipate what your partner wants or needs in different moments I think is the most important lesson I learned.”
Johansson and Jost got engaged in 2019 after dating for two years and were married last October in a private ceremony for close friends and family.
