Colin Jost Worried About Losing His Identity When He Started Dating Scarlett Johansson

Colin Jost is opening up about his relationship with Scarlett Johansson and how they separate work from real life.

The 38-year-old comedian and SNL star made an appearance on SiriusXM’s The Howard Stern Show and he was asked about the early days in their relationship.

Howard asked Colin if he was worried about being known as just Scarlett‘s boyfriend.

“Yes. That was definitely a worry,” Colin said, before adding that his SNL cast mates loved her. “I worried about my identity with it and also with comedy… So, I was always worried about anything that felt non-comedy.”

Colin also discussed how he once attended an event for SNL instead of being Scarlett‘s date to a pre-Oscars event. He said, “You have to keep your own identity and do your own thing.”

Howard asked Colin if he gets jealous from Scarlett‘s on-screen romances, like her one with Adam Driver in Marriage Story.

“I don’t think it’s really happened that I’ve experienced it yet since we’ve been dating,” Colin said. He jokingly added, “I’m gonna try and push her into a lot more animated stuff. Just all voice work.”

“I think probably five, ten years ago each of these things that you’ve described would have been devastating. If people want to be together and love each other, they’re going to be together,” he said.

In another interview, Colin revealed what he thought of Scarlett when they first met back in 2006.
