Scarlett Johansson has played many roles in her life—superheroine, femme fatale, disembodied voice—but she’s about to reprise a very special one—no, not Ivanka Trump on SNL (although she really should do that again, she slayyys)— a newlywed. ScarJo’s engagement to SNL head writer and “Weekend Update” co-host Colin Jost has been the stuff of Hollywood fairytales and with that comes some famous friends. But in an effort to avoid being thrust into the plot of a Hangover movie, Scarlett is insisting upon one rule for Colin’s bachelor party and “Weekend Update” co-host Michael Che ain’t gonna like it.
Stopping by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET) Monday night to talk about her new movies Jojo Rabbit and Marriage Story, the latter of which tracks the course of a couple’s divorce, naturally the topic of her imminent nuptials came up.
Jimmy (who is friends with that whole SNL crew) kindly informed Scarlett that when her fiance and Michael visited The Tonight Show in September, they said Che would be planning the party. She did not take kindly to that.
“I feel like if [Michael] throws it, it’s going to be by the Port Authority,” she joked, referencing the gross, dingy, and downright creepy bus terminal on the west side of Manhattan.
“Michael’s not throwing it!” she yelped at Jimmy, before addressing the camera, “Michael. I know where you work, Michael.”
Mega-yikes. If we were Michael Che, we’d be scared. After all, ScarJo has got some lethal Black Widow moves and she just wrapped the new solo film in London so she’s in top fighting form.
Besides, she clearly knows what she’s talking about in the marriage department—she already has experience, most notably with Canadian hunk Ryan Reynolds back in 2008—but as she spoke more about her film Marriage Story, she reminded us she’s also an expert on the pain of divorce. “If you haven’t gone through a divorce, lucky you,” she snarked, “But there is a lot of love in this film.”
