Colin Jost was smitten with Scarlett Johansson from the moment they first met — he's convinced that she can't say the same.
In his new memoir, "A Very Punchable Face," Colin recalls meeting his now-fiancée on the set of "Saturday Night Live." Scarlett was acting in a sketch he wrote parodying MTV's "My Super Sweet 16."
"She claims that she remembers thinking I was 'cute' but I know what I looked like and that's not the word I would have used. ('Shaggy' would have been more generous. 'Slovenly' would have been more accurate)," he writes. "I remember her being beautiful, smart, sweet, and intimidatingly sophisticated."
"And she had a grace and a smile that I've still never seen in any other human," he adds.
According to Page Six, Colin only briefly mentions the "Avengers" actress in his book, but he isn't shy about his feelings.
"I've met someone I love and who I feel more comfortable with than I ever have before," he writes.
Colin also thanks his lady love in his acknowledgments section.
"Thank you to Scarlett for being my first reader and for always protecting me from my worst instincts," he writes. "Remember that Mexican mask I tried to put in our living room? Thanks for stopping me from doing that."
Colin and Scarlett got engaged in May 2019 after two years of dating.
Last year, Colin reportedly joked about marriage after taking the stage during a celiac disease research benefit.
"I'm getting married and it's such a crazy thing. … I was so scared of marriage for so long because every time I talked to someone who just got married or was about to get married, it's like, 'Oh my God, you got to do it… What could go wrong?'" he said. "Then you talk to someone who's been married for five years, and they're like, 'Don't rush into it… you have your whole life ahead of you. Don't have kids. They're the worst.'"
