Over the weekend, after a pretty great Saturday Night Live season finale, which features ScarJo in a cameo playing Ivanka Trump, Scarlett Johansson managed the near impossible: To make out with a man with no lips.
After the show, the actress, who is currently going through a divorce, hit it off with handsome comedian Jost at the boozy after-party held at the ice rink at Rockefeller Center, which raged into the early hours of Sunday morning.
A witness told Page Six, “Scarlett and Colin were making out at the bar at the ‘SNL’ season finale party at 30 Rock . . . They would make out a bit, then go back to talking,” says the source. “They were at the bar in front of everyone . . . they made out at least twice . . . Then they went back to talking and hanging with other people.”
Unmentioned in the story is that in between each make-out session, Michael Che would come over and make “typical white guy” jokes at the expense of Jost (warranted, in this case), while Jost repeatedly drew false equivalencies between himself and Ryan Reynolds, suggesting that making out with ScarJo is the same as being married to her. While Michael Che did not make out with ScarJo, he did whistle, “Nice ass, ScarJo!” from across the rink. When Johansson took issue, Che apologized “for complimenting” Johansson and huffed, “This is why the Democrats lost the election.”
When reached for comment, Johansson’s publicist released what is now a boilerplate statement, saying only that “My client does not talk about personal matters. Diversity is important in Hollywood.”
Johansson is reportedly currently in negotiations to play the lead role in Disney’s live-action Mulan.
