Scarlett Johansson doesn’t claim to know what guarantees a healthy and successful marriage, but she knows what works in her relationship with Saturday Night Live star Colin Jost.

“We laugh a lot and we always, you know, we communicate with one another and check in,” the two-time Oscar nominee explained during an appearance on CBS Mornings on Monday.

“I’m married to a writer, he’s a comedy writer [and] he can get very in his head sometimes.”

“He’s sort of introverted – I’m extroverted, obviously – and so I think the key for us is just always checking in,” Scarlett said, adding that the two make time to ask about each other’s days.

The Black Widow star and SNL writer tied the knot in 2020. Before Colin, Scarlett was previously married to fellow actor Ryan Reynolds and to French journalist Romain Dauriac.

Scarlett previously said that before marrying her husband, she “didn’t know not only what I wanted, but what I needed from somebody else”.

“There are certain fundamental things in your own personality I needed to share with the other person,” the actor said during an interview with Gwyneth Paltrow for her Goop podcast earlier this year.

“I never realised, oh, it’s really important for me – like, I need to be with a compassionate person,” the Marriage Story actor said at the time. “That’s like a fundamental characteristic that has to be there.”
