After filing for divorce from husband Romain Dauriac in March, Scarlett Johansson has been linked to a new man: Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost.
E! News reports that following the final SNL episode of the season on Saturday night, in which Scarlett made a brief appearance reprising her role as Ivanka Trump, the cast and crew headed to a wrap party where Scarlett and Colin were seen being openly affectionate.
“Scarlett and Colin were flirting and canoodling in full view of everyone at the after party, including the SNL cast and crew,” one guest said, while another witness said they “made out at least twice” at the bar.
Another insider to E! that “Saturday night wasn’t the first time … it’s been going on for a bit.”
Scarlett, 32, may have discovered her chemistry with funnyman Colin, 34, when Johansson hosted SNL for the fifth time back in March. Her most memorable skit from the episode was her portrayal of Ivanka Trump, in which America’s first daughter was roasted for being complicit in her father’s anti-women policies, and accused of being a fake feminist.

“Complicit: the fragrance for the woman who could stop all of this, but won’t. Also available in a cologne for Jared,” Johansson’s voiceover read.
In response, Ivanka told CBS News’s Gayle King “If being complicit is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I’m complicit.”
But her answer wasn’t good enough for Scarlett, who skewered the former fashion businesswoman, now Whitehouse employee, yet again.
“I thought to myself, ‘Well that’s empowering,’” Johansson said sarcastically as she spoke to Arianna Huffington at the eighth annual Women in the World Summit.
“If you take a job as a public advocate, then you must advocate publicly.
“It’s such an old-fashioned concept that to be a powerful woman you can’t appear to be concerned,” the actress said. “Screw that, it’s so old-fashioned, it’s so uninspired and actually really cowardly.”
