How Scarlett Johansson Completely Changed Colin Jost's Views on Marriage
The comedian credits his fiancée for his new outlook.
The Saturday Night Live comedian, 37, performed stand-up at the Guild Hall in the Hamptons on Saturday night to benefit celiac disease research.
"I was so scared of marriage for so long because every time I talked to someone who just got married, or was about to get married, is like, 'Oh my God, you got to do it. What could go wrong?'" he joked.
Jost continued, "Then you talk to someone who's been married for five years, and they're like, 'Don't rush into it. You have your whole life ahead of you. Don't have kids. They're the worst.'"
The Avengers: Endgame star debuted her 11-carat engagement ring earlier this month while taking the stage at San Diego Comic-Con for her upcoming Black Widow film.
In May of this year, a source told PEOPLE that the pair had bonded over a similar sense of humor—particularly their shared love of sarcasm.
"Scarlett likes Colin's sarcasm and wit," the insider said of the Avengers: Endgame actress and the Saturday Night Live funnyman. "They share a love for acerbic humor and outrage at social issues gone bad. They have much in common."
