This weekend, Avengers: Endgame star Scarlett Johansson hosted Saturday Night Live for the sixth time, but it was her first since she got engaged to SNL star Colin Jost. And, during her monologue, Johansson and Jost shared a sweet moment when she called it the love of their lives, and the couple kissed several times at the start and end of the show.
“It’s so great to be back for SNL for the sixth time,” said Johansson. “The sixth time is even more exciting than the fifth because you are no longer worried. The show is bad, what are they going to do, fire my fiance? Oh no, what will we do without his check pay? “

Over the course of the monologue, half of the cast began to turn into dust. And, Johansson thought it must be the work of Thanos. When the 35-year-old actress discovered that Michael Che, co-host of “Weekend Update”, Jost was a survivor, she was thrilled. But, when she realized that Jost also survived when he went on stage, she was not as excited.
“I thought you would be more relieved to see me,” said Jost, Johansson responding calmly. “I am. It’s good.”
“I don’t feel well,” said Jost.
Johansson said she was focused on Thanos, and she finally discovered with Nick Fury (played by Keenan Thompson) that it was Pete Davidson who had the Infinity Gauntlet. Finally, he brought the actors back to life. And when everyone gathered on stage, Johansson ran to Jost to give him a hug and a kiss.
“It’s great to see you all again,” said Johansson. “I just want to say that this place is so important to me. I have so many friends here and I have met the love of my life here. Merry Christmas.”
At the end of the show, the couple shared even more kisses as the credits rolled.
Amazing to learn that I am always tender when I feel moved by Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost to be affectionate on SNL.

Johansson and Jost got engaged in May after dating for two years. Fans were lucky enough to see his 11-carat diamond engagement ring at the San Diego Comic-Con in July. In a recent appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Johansson revealed that Jost “killed him” when he proposed with “a whole James Bond situation.”
“It was very personal. It was a special moment, ”said Johansson. “I think, more than anything, when someone tells you they want to spend their life with you, it’s a nice special thing.”
Saturday Night Live will air the latest new episodes of 2019 on Saturday December 21 when alum Eddie Murphy is back to host the show for the first time in 35 years.
