7 Celeb Couples Who've Met Through "SNL"


As you probably already know, the new whirlwind romance between Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson has left both SNL fans and Arianators mutually shook.

But this isn't the first time a Saturday Night Live cast or crew member has dated an A-list celeb. Actually, the show has quite a bit of experience in celebrity matchmaking.


So for your reading pleasure, here's a comprehensive list of all the known A-lister/SNL staffer couples (that we know of, at least!!!):


1. Scarlett Johannson and Colin Jost

ScarJo and the SNL head writer were first ~linked~ in May 2017 after they were seen kissing at the SNL season finale afterparty. This pic of them was taken at the 2018 Met Gala, where they looked as in love as ever!

2. Emma Stone and Dave McCary

The pair met in late 2016 after Stone hosted SNL and starred in the sketch "Wells for Boys" which McCary directed. While they keep their relationship on the DL, the couple has been spotted out and about several times in 2018, leading us to believe they're still very much a ~thing.~

3. Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis

4. Ben Affleck and Lindsay Shookus

5. Carrie Fisher and Dan Aykroyd


Back in 1978, the late Star Wars actress and SNL cast member met when Fisher hosted the sketch show. They later fell in love on the set of their movie The Blues Brothers and eventually got engaged. HOWEVS, Fisher called it off because she fell in love with Paul Simon. DRAMA!

6. Elisabeth Moss and Fred Armisen
