Scarlett was his first female guest since his grand debut Tuesday, and she flew in from Europe just for the occasion. "You jetted in from Paris to New York to do a television show?" Colbert asked. Scarlett said she was excited to back in the Big Apple, though she has a soft spot for the City of Light, where she now lives with her husband, Romain Dauriac, and their 1-year-old daughter, Rose Dorothy Dauriac.
"There's not a day that goes by that I don't walk down the street and go, 'Wow, this is such an incredibly beautiful place,'" the Lucy star said of Paris.
The actress later clarified, "I absolutely love New York. I haven't left."
Scarlett revealed that she has been learning French, although she prefers to speak English because it helps her win arguments with Romain. "When you're in a relationship with somebody you want to speak whatever language is easiest to get your ideas out as quickly as possible, so you can argue your point," she explained.
