Now that the WGA strike is over and “Saturday Night Live” is back on the air, Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost’s home life has undergone some changes. At the God’s Love We Deliver’s Golden Heart Awards in New York City, where Johansson was honored for her work with the nonprofit, she spoke with ET’s Rachel Smith about Jost’s return to the “SNL” writers’ room and how they are navigating parenthood with their 2-year-old son, Cosmo.
Expressing her excitement for the writers and performers at “SNL,” Johansson revealed that they were eager to get back to doing what they love. She acknowledged that the show’s schedule is hectic and requires adjustment, but she believes the talented individuals at “SNL” are needed now more than ever.
When asked about tackling the notorious “terrible twos” with their son Cosmo, Johansson shared a humorous insight. She joked, “I think the ‘Terrible Twos’ are more like tackling me! Like, actually physically tackling me.” It seems that parenthood is not without its challenges, even for Hollywood stars.
Despite their busy lives, Johansson made sure to attend the God’s Love We Deliver gala event to show her support. She praised the organization’s meaningful work, highlighting their low administrative cost and dedication to helping those in need. Specifically, the organization focuses on cooking and delivering tailored and healthy meals to individuals who are too ill to take care of their own nutritional needs.
Johansson emphasized the prevalence of food insecurity in the United States and praised the volunteers involved in the organization. In her speech, she recognized their incredible efforts and the impact they have on making people feel valued and cared for.
Overall, with “SNL” back on TV and their son keeping them on their toes, Scarlett Johansson and Colin Jost are navigating the joys and challenges of parenting while also using their platform to support causes that make a difference.
