Scarlett Johansson’s whereabouts have caught the nerd world’s attention in recent days – with the assumption being that the actress is set to appear on the Avengers: Infinity War set in the near future. But in the meantime, Johansson recently made an appearance on the stage of Saturday Night Live – and it appears that she has found a new beau because of it.
Johansson reprised her role of Ivanka Trump during the cold open of SNL’s May 20th season finale. And at the show’s after party, the actress reportedly got cozy with SNL cast member Colin Jost.
According to a report by PageSix, multiple sources spotted the actress, most recently seen in Ghost in the Shell, kissing the show’s Weekend Update co-host.
“Scarlett and Colin were making out at the bar at the SNL season finale party at 30 Rock.” One source explained. “They would make out a bit, then go back to talking. They were at the bar in front of everyone. They made out at least twice. Then they went back to talking and hanging with other people.”
“Scarlett and Colin were flirting and canoodling in full view of everyone at the afterparty, including the SNL cast and crew.” Another source revealed. “They were laughing and seemed to really hit it off.”
While this may appear like a casual fling, sources reporting to Radar Online indicate that the relationship has been blossoming since Johansson hosted SNL back in March.
“They met when she hosted the show months ago and have been talking ever since.”
Johansson is currently going through a divorce from her ex-husband Romain Dauriac, while Jost’s most recent relationship with Parks and Recreation and Angie Tribeca star Rashida Jones ended in 2016.
You can check out the first synopsis for Avengers: Infinity War below:
“As the Avengers and their allies have continued to protect the world from threats too large for any one hero to handle, a new danger has emerged from the cosmic shadows: Thanos. A despot of intergalactic infamy, his goal is to collect all six Infinity Stones, artifacts of unimaginable power, and use them to inflict his twisted will on all of reality. Everything the Avengers have fought for has led up to this moment – the fate of Earth and existence itself has never been more uncertain.”
