What is it about Zayn Malik that turns Gigi Hadid on the most?

We're sure a lot of you are already rattling off a list of qualities about the young singer that you can't help but swoon after—those big brown eyes, the way he speaks, that singing voice, his scruff and smile, those tattoos...And while his supermodel girlfriend may be attracted all of those things as well, none of what we just listed is what she loves the most about her beau.

"I would say his brain," Hadid tells ES Magazine for their latest issue. "For the first time, we are both in a relationship where we have very similar interests outside of work and that is really important. We cook a lot together and do art together and we're each others' best friends. We both feel we can talk about anything and learn a lot from one another."

Hadid also touched on dating a British man, something her bestie Taylor Swift, who recently dated Tom Hiddleston, also knows all too well (see what we did there?).

"Well I think we both like the British sense of charm," Gigi tells the mag. "I'm also getting super into British foods. I'm loving Heinz baked beans in the morning, yeah and Z cooks a lot. He makes a brilliant curry. Butter chicken is his signature dish. Don't worry—he's representing good for the British boys!"

Speaking of celeb pals, Gigi explains why it helps to rely on her star-studded squad for advice. "Yeah it is definitely, between us, an open conversation. The reason you become so close to people in the industry is that they understand what it is that you are experiencing. We all teach and learn from one another. If you have a question about privacy, for example, everyone is super helpful about it."

Gigi's issue of ES magazine will be available on newsstands this Thursday.
