Scarlett Johansson reveals that her husband, Colin Jost, would check for spoilers before he would run Black Widow lines with her. Scarlett Johannsson had surprisingly difficult time getting her husband to run lines with her while she was working on Black Widow – he was afraid that she would spoil the movie!
Johannsson was on The Jess Cagle Show on Sirius XM when she discussed how she handled things with her husband, Saturday Night Live co-head writer (and co-anchor of the show’s famous Weekend Update comedy news segment with Michael Che) Colin Jost, when the two were both living in London together while she was filming the upcoming Black Widow and Jost was working on the since-released Tom and Jerry movie, also shooting in London.
“When we were shooting this film in London, Colin was also there – he was shooting Tom and Jerry – which worked out great because we were together in the same city for a long time, which is rare. And if I was in the middle of a big action set piece or sequence or whatever, he couldn’t hear – he was just not wanting to hear anything – anything – about it, anything about the details – of course he wants to know, ‘How was your day?’ but as soon as it was like, ‘Can you read this scene with [me]?’ he was like, ‘Am I gonna get any spoilers?'”
