When Scarlett Johansson strolled onto the Oscars 2017 red carpet Sunday evening, some of us were like, “Is that an Alaïa?” (It was—a totally important designer.) Then, in regard to the well-bronzed man onto whose arm she was clinging, we were like, “Oh. Who’s that?”
Answer: talent agent Joe Machota, who’s been head of CAA’s theater department since 2013. According to Vanity Fair, the former actor has been instrumental in leading his clients—including Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, and, yes, Johansson—to box-office success.
Johansson might be single at the moment, having reportedly separated from husband Romain Dauriac “since the summer.” Intriguing.
