Scarlett Johansson remarries in ‘intimate ceremony’

  • Johansson was previously married to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds and French journalist Romain Dauriac

LOS ANGELES: Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson has married for a third time, tying the knot at an “intimate ceremony” over the weekend with comedian Colin Jost, it was announced Thursday.
Johansson, the world’s top-paid actress last year who is set to star in the much-delayed Marvel superhero film “Black Widow,” announced the nuptials through food charity Meals on Wheels.
The pair wed in front of “immediate family and loved ones, following COVID-19 safety precautions,” the charity wrote on Instagram.
“Their wedding wish is to help make a difference for vulnerable older adults during this difficult time by supporting @mealsonwheelsamerica,” said the post, inviting donations.
The 35-year-old star became engaged to “Saturday Night Live” writer and actor Jost, 38, in May 2019 after two years of dating.
New York-born Johansson was previously married to Canadian actor Ryan Reynolds and French journalist Romain Dauriac.
After a series of child roles, Johansson came to prominence in Sofia Coppola’s Oscar-winning 2003 romantic comedy “Lost in Translation.”
She has since transitioned to A-list roles, including eight Marvel film appearances as Natasha Romanoff, and earned $56 million to top Forbes’ 2019 top-paid actress list.
Johansson earned two Oscar nominations last year, for “Jojo Rabbit” and “Marriage Story.”
In addition to her acting, Johansson has previously spoken out for women’s causes: she was one of the first to join and help finance the Time’s Up movement that works to defend victims of sexual harassment and abuse.
