S.N.L.: The Real Reason Scarlett Johansson Crashed the Last Show of the Year

VANITY FAIR – There was no way Saturday Night Live was going to close out its banner year without one more trip to the location that proved so easy to mock in 2017: Donald Trump’s White House. The opening sketch hung on the concept of Trump and his cohorts bidding a snarky farewell to the many political figures, like Sean Spicer, who didn’t last the year.

Melissa McCarthy wasn’t on hand to kick around Spicer one last time, but S.N.L. did get an A-list star (in addition to Alec Baldwin) to give the sketch some added holiday value. Reprising her appearance from back in March, Scarlett Johansson swung by to roll out her Ivanka Trump impression one last time this year.

The parade of impressions from the regular cast, however, easily highlighted the year’s M.V.P.s as Mikey Day’s Donald Jr. and Alex Moffat’s Eric Trump handily stole the show with their dumb and dumber routine.

Leslie Jones also made an appearance just outside the White House window as freshly fired (or was she?) Trump employee Omarosa Manigault. Jones repeated the impression just a few sketches later when she crashed “Weekend Update.”

But Omarosa wasn’t the only repeat appearance on the show. As the credits rolled and host Kevin Hart said his goodbyes alongside the rest of the cast on the ice rink at Rockefeller Center, Johansson and her newly-official partner, Colin Jost, could be seen grinning, holding hands, and skating off together.

We can assume that Johansson’s guest role was at least in part a show of support for Jost on his first episode back as head writer of S.N.L.

In her most recent magazine feature, Scarlett was featured on the March 2020 issue of Entertainment Weekly. In addition to a stunning photoshoot, she discussed the upcoming movie, Black Widow.

“This film is very much a result of that journey, my own personal journey,” Johansson says of her 10-year run as Black Widow. “I feel that I probably wasn’t as willing or able to go to the kind of uncomfortable, embarrassing, ugly places before. I think it’s just as you get older, you trust yourself more.”

Quoting Scarlett
"I’m certainly, obviously, very happy and fulfilled in my personal life, but I’m also a sum of many parts, and able to access different parts of my story and how I got here. It’s all valuable."
