AceShowbiz - Jake Gyllenhaal isn't going to be alone this Christmas. Years since he last went public with his romantic relationship, the 38-year-old actor is reportedly dating French model Jeanne Cadieu, who is 16 years his junior.
"Jeanne is very mature for her age. She's quirky, smart and loves history, reading; she's a really great and well-rounded person," a source tells Us Weekly of the 22-year-old beauty. "She and Jake really took things slow, but are now pretty serious."
According to the site, the couple has been together since June of this year, but has no intention to go public just yet. They are trying to keep their relationship under wraps and even not following each other on social media, though the "Nightcrawler" star joined Instagram earlier this month.
While there's still no picture of them together, the two were reportedly spotted hanging out in London in July and Greece in August. The couple is also believed to have visited Paris during the summer, with Jeanne posting on her Instagram account a picture of the Eiffel Tower.
In the caption, she cited a quote that appeared to allude to their romance. "My own brokenness. my broken was attracted to your broken, maybe that's why I allowed you to break me," it read.
Jake was previously romantically linked to Reese Witherspoon, Kirsten Dunst and Natalie Portman. His personal life was under the prying eyes of media when he dated Taylor Swift for a few months in 2010, before they split up in early 2011.
Opening up about the discomfort of getting the attention on his romantic relationship, the Academy Award-nominated actor told The Guardian in 2017, "I think when you're in a relationship, you are constantly scrutinized, your friends are scrutinized, but... I would love to not talk about my personal life."
