But, how much do we know about their fortune? We decided to explore Colin’s net worth while taking a look at the SNL writer’s professional life!
The duo has been in the news recently after reports about the Black Widow actress’ alleged pregnancy started making rounds on the internet. However, neither Scarlett or Colin have commented on the news, which appears to be a hearsay so far.

The American comedian and actor, who is best known for his work as a writer on SNL has been a part of the entertainment industry since 2005. He began his career as a writer for a Nickelodeon show called Kappa Mikey. Following his stint on the short-lived animated show, he landed a writing job on SNL.
He has also been on camera several times by featuring on television shows and movies including Jimmy Fallon and Just For Laughs for Montreal and Chicago, How to Be Single and WWE’s Monday Night Raw. He penned his memoir titled A Very Punchable Face: A Memoir, which was released in 2020 and made it to the New York Times Bestseller List.
No doubt Colin has had quite a successful career and according to Celebrity Net Worth, he is estimated to have a net worth of $8 million. According to the outlet, he makes $25,000 per episode of SNL, which totals upto $525,000 per season.
How did Colin Jost and Scarlett Johansson meet?
Even though romance sparked between Colin and Scarlette only around 2017, they first met years ago. Reportedly, the actress met her future husband when she was hosting SNL for the first time in 2006 when Colin had just joined as a writer.
However, they made their relationship public in 2018 after months of speculations and got engaged in 2019. The couple tied the knot in October 2020.
The actress was “surprised” by the proposal
During her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Scarlett discussed her engagement to Colin and said that she was “surprised”. She couldn’t stop gushing about her fiance as she called him “very charming, very thoughtful and romantic.”
And when she returned to SNL after getting engaged, the actress used the platform to express her admiration for Colin as she said, “I just want to say that this place means so much to me. I have so many friends here, and I met the love of my life here.”
