Since then, they’ve been spotted in the Hamptons over the Fourth of July and Labor Day, outside the “SNL” season-opener afterparty at Tao in September, and on Oct.
28 at the Wilbur Theatre in Boston — with Johansson, 32, playing the dutiful girlfriend as the 35-year-old comedian performed.
The two met at the Chateau Marmont in January 2011, just weeks after her separation from Reynolds went public.
“She sure met her match with Sean,” said a friend of Penn’s.
While Di Caprio has made a second career out of loving and leaving models, Scarlett Johansson has a 15-year-old trail of famous broken hearts behind her — with Ryan Reynolds, Jared Leto, Sean Penn and Jude Law, among others, all in her rearview mirror.An “SNL” insider said it’s not hard to see why Johansson is drawn to Jost, a Harvard grad: “Colin’s smart, successful, unpretentious.” And his dating history includes only one other celebrity: “Parks and Recreation” actress Rashida Jones, from 2013 to 2016.“Colin’s a total good guy, not a ladies’ man at all,” said the “SNL” source.“He’s just afraid he’ll f–k it up.” But maybe he should worry about the bigger issue: When will Johansson get bored?Since her teen years, when she was a student at the Professional Children’s School on the Upper West Side and dating classmate Jack Antonoff — now a music producer and the boyfriend of Lena Dunham — Johansson has rarely been on her own.It looks like things are getting serious between Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost.On Monday night, the couple — who first began dating in May 2017 — made their first joint red carpet appearance at the LA premiere of Scarlett's new movie, Avengers: Infinity War.(Johansson later said, “I went home alone that night to my mom’s house,” but never outright denied the incident.) The actress revealed something that makes her tick when she told Cosmopolitan in 2016 that “long ago, I had someone in my life who was forever unavailable … “She was always [more] mature, and things just fizzled with them.” (The two reportedly had a brief fling in 2012 as well.) A Johansson source pegged her next romance — with “Black Dahlia” co-star Josh Hartnett — to the fact that actors get lonely on set.but, like, so attractively unavailable.” Sources speculate that the man in question was Law, who was engaged to Sienna Miller in 2004. “When she was with Jared, they were very playful with one another,” said someone who was in her social circle at the time. “[They] spend a lot of time in hotel rooms, alone.” The two shared a low-key romance from 2005 to 2006, often hanging out at Lower East Side spots like the bar Max Fish.Months later, Reynolds announced his own superhero movie, “Green Lantern.” Nonetheless, a publicist in the know told The Post that Reynolds grew jealous of his wife’s career and earnings: “They weren’t on equal footing at that point, and it created tension.” Sources also spoke of Reynolds being disciplined, regimented and highly scheduled, and Johansson being more laid-back and freewheeling, which sometimes led to screaming matches.Although the couple shared a home in Los Angeles, in 2010 they were rarely together: Johansson was on Broadway eight times a week in “A View From the Bridge,” and Reynolds was filming “Green Lantern” in New Orleans.
