Spotted: Jake Gyllenhaal and his girlfriend Jeanne Cadieu in New York City.

On Thursday, May 6, the 40-year-old Nightcrawler actor was photographed walking hand-in-hand with the 22-year-old French model in Manhattan. In what marked a rare public sighting of the couple, the pair both wore dark jackets and matching black face masks.

The two were previously photographed in public together in June 2020 in Los Angeles. Jake was seen grabbing a to-go meal for him and his lady and then the two drove off in an Audi.

The actor and the model first sparked romance rumors in late 2018 when they were spotted walking with their arms linked in Paris. The following year, they were seen together a few times in New York City, where he bought a condo three years ago. In August 2019, Jeanne was spotted supporting Jake on the opening night of the Broadway show Sea Wall/A Life, which starred the actor in what marked his third Broadway theatre role.

Jake's girlfriend also has her own ties to the city—on her Instagram profile, she describes herself as a Columbia University student.


Jake and Jeanne have not commented about their relationship. The actor, who has previously dated the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift and Kirsten Dunst, has always remained largely private about his love life.

"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," told The Guardian in 2017. "I'm old school in that way."

In 2019, Jake offered a hint about his future hopes to start a family, saying on NBC's Today show, "I do hope to be a father one day."

He echoed those comments in an interview with British Vogue last year. When asked if he saw kids in his future, he said, "Yes, of course I do. I definitely do."

"I'm not someone who has ever existed in a space where I've really known what's coming next," he continued. "But you do have to be open to it."
