Jake Gyllenhaal, 40, makes a rare sighting with his French model girlfriend of three years Jeanne Cadieu, 25, as they hold hands in NYC

Jake Gyllenhaal made a rare sighting with his girlfriend Jeanne Cadieu in New York City on Thursday.

The 40-year-old NIghtcrawler star held hands with the French model, 25, as they strolled around Manhattan in heavy jackets. 

The couple have been dating since 2018 but they maintain a very low profile twosome and their public outings are few and far between.

Though glimpses of the pair together are infrequent, sources told Us Weekly in December 2018 that their relationship had become serious.   

‘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 told the magazine. 

The source added, ‘She and Jake really took things slow, but are now pretty serious.’

The couple have spent many vacations together including trips to Martha’s Vineyard, London, Greece and Paris.

In 2019, Jeanne attended the opening night of Gyllenhaal and Tom Sturridge’s Broadway play Sea Wall/A Life. They also went to several events together but walked the red carpet separately.

Though the two both have Instagram accounts, they did not follow each other up until recently.

Jake’s previous romances were much more public. The Nocturnal Animals actor has dated some of Hollywood’s most famous faces including Kirsten Dunst, Natalie Portman, Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift.

However, he has said that he prefers to lead a private life. In a 2017 interview with The Guardian, Jake said, ‘There are some things I keep to myself, that are my business.’

Gyllenhaal explained, ‘I’m not necessarily guarded, but I consider intimacy to be very important and I don’t think everybody needs to know about my family or my personal details. I’m old school in that way.’    

‘I would love to not talk about my personal life,’ he said.
