Scarlett Johansson on her lockdown wedding: 'We wanted it to have an intentional intimacy'

Scarlett Johansson wanted to create "intentional intimacy" with her lockdown wedding to Colin Jost.

The 'Black Widow' star tied the knot with Colin last year while the world was in lockdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic and has said she strived to create a ceremony that was supposed to be intimate, rather than something that felt "restricted" by lockdown rules.

She explained: "I think just keeping it intimate and small made it feel intentional. We wanted it to feel like it had an intentional intimacy as opposed to being something that felt like we were restricted by all these things."

Scarlett also insisted she and Colin followed all the COVID-19 "protocol" in planning and hosting their wedding.

She added to People magazine: "And there was a lot to take into consideration because of all of the CDC guidelines and making sure everybody was comfortable and safe, following all the COVID protocol."

Meanwhile, Colin recently said he didn't get heavily involved in planning his nuptials because he knows the 36-year-old beauty has "better taste" than he does.

 

He said: "I don't pretend to know much about things or have taste in things.

"I'm very happy to rely on someone who has a lot better taste and knowledge of things. That's sort of what I've learned in general in my life. I've never been like, 'Oh, should I wear this shirt?' ... I never know, so I always would rather someone else tell me."

And Colin was more focused on their marriage than the wedding itself, insisting choosing his bride was a "way bigger decision" than the details of their celebration.

He said: "I was much happier about getting [that] right than any of the other.

"I never grew up imagining my dream wedding, like, this is what I want. I imagined my dream partner rather than my dream wedding. There's a lot of details to it that I just didn't even consider."
