Scarlett Johansson enjoys 'chill' dinner date with comedian - report

Scarlett Johansson was reportedly seen enjoying a dinner date with comedian Colin Jost over the weekend (10-11Jun17), a few weeks after they were spotted making out at a party.

The Ghost in the Shell actress, who filed for divorce from husband Romain Dauriac in March (17), headed out with Saturday Night Live star Colin, who hosts Weekend Update, on Saturday night (10Jun17), according to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six.

The pair are said to have made their way to upmarket eatery The East Pole in New York, where they enjoyed dinner and drinks.

"They were really chill and super nice. They were holding hands and having drinks," a source told the outlet.

Scarlett apparently enjoyed a couple of Manhattan cocktails during the night out, while Colin experimented with one of the restaurant's own specialty cocktails.

The fledgling couple's evening out came after they were seen "making out" during the afterparty following the season finale of Saturday Night Live on 20 May.

Page Six reported at the time that Scarlett and Colin hit it off straight away, and allegedly did little to hide their affection for one another.

"Scarlett and Colin were making out at the bar at the SNL season finale party at 30 Rock," a witness told the outlet. "They would make out a bit, then go back to talking. They were at the bar in front of everyone, they made out at least twice. Then they went back to talking and hanging with other people."

Colin was asked about the rumors by E! News on Friday and he played coy by replying, "I'm very happy in my personal life." When asked if he wanted to weigh in on the buzz surrounding their rumored romance, he said, "What?! No way. No, I'm good."

Scarlett and Romain, who are parents to two-year-old daughter Rose Dorothy, secretly wed in a private wedding ceremony in October 2014. She was previously married to actor Ryan Reynolds from 2008 to 2011.
