It should come as no surprise that the network of celebrity relationships in Hollywood is even more intricate than the “Bachelor” series, yet, that’s saying something. There is a never-ending stream of love encounters in Los Angeles, from famous couples who split up but still had to work together to suspected on-set romances. The city is known as the “City of Angels.” According to Slate, public relations teams play a significant part in the process of establishing these alliances. As an example, Jennifer Anniston and Brad Pitt first became acquainted with one another on a date that was set up by their respective agencies. Taylor Swift has also been accused of engaging in a number of public relations stunts. In particular, her relationship with Tom Hiddleston in 2016 was the subject of much conjecture (via Vox).
According to Bustle, the dating application Raya, which is an applicants-only site for the affluent and famous, also plays a big part in the process of bringing together celebrity couples. Despite the fact that the application takes great pleasure in maintaining its anonymity, it has been rumored that Demi Lovato, Channing Tatum, John Mayer, Lizzo, and Cara Delevingne are among its users (via The New Yorker). Nevertheless, there was a select group of couples that were a good fit before they gained widespread popularity. When Carey Mulligan and the man who would later become her husband, Marcus Mumford, first met at a church camp, both of them were just 12 years old. If you can believe it, the fashion magazine InStyle claims that the famous music producer Jack Antonoff was Scarlett Johansson’s high school boyfriend while they were both still in high school.
Scarlett Johansson is one of the most well-known actors working today. She is best known for her role as Black Widow in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and she is also set to receive two nominations for the Academy Awards in 2020 for her performances in the films “Marriage Story” and “Jojo Rabbit.” Both of these films have received a great deal of critical acclaim. In the early 2000s, Johansson rose to prominence as a result of her roles in films such as “Ghost World” (2001) and “Lost in Translation” (2003); all of these films were critically acclaimed. According to InStyle, Johansson met Jack Antonoff, a musician, when she was a student at a prestigious NYC prep school for young performers aspiring to a career in the entertainment industry. Antonoff would later go on to produce for well-known artists such as Taylor Swift and Lorde (via The Guardian).
In 2001, the two started dating and even went to the same high school prom together. Prior to the actress breaking his heart, Antonoff was enamored with Johansson while they were both students at the same school, as was first reported by The Post (via Page Six). After she graduated from high school, a mutual acquaintance of theirs claims that she “was caught up in the Hollywood lifestyle.”
Antonoff went on to compose the song “Better Love” about the doomed romance, which he did with the assistance of his band Steel Train at the time (via Genius). He sings, “Scars are in her name, and she scars me in blame,” and these are the lyrics of the song. Antonoff told Vulture that his connection with Johansson during their high school years was “as natural as anyone’s high-school romance,” despite the fact that it may seem strange.
Scarlett Johansson and Jack Antonoff both went on to meet spouses with whom they would share a long-term commitment, despite the fact that their high school relationship did not survive beyond the year 2002. According to Us Weekly, Johansson was married to the actor Ryan Reynolds from the year 2008 to the year 2010, when the couple divorced. She eventually tied the knot with the French journalist Romain Dauriac in the year 2014, and the couple was blessed with a daughter prior to their separation in the year 2017. The star of “Black Widow” just tied the knot with “Saturday Night Live” writer and Weekend Update host Colin Jost in the year 2020. They have a child together as a couple.
According to Distractify, Antonoff dated the controversial actress and comedian Lena Dunham between the years of 2012 and 2018. Dunham is also known to have a public acquaintance with Antonoff’s long-time partner, Taylor Swift. The composer of “Love Simon” said to Vulture in a feature that was published in 2014 that he told Lena Dunham everything about himself on their first date. This includes his previous relationship with Scarlett Johansson. Despite the fact that the two didn’t end up together, Antonoff is reportedly now engaged to the actress Margaret Qualley (as reported by Vogue).
