They’re in the budding stages of a new romance.And Jake Gyllenhaal and his girlfriend of three months Alyssa Miller looked every bit the freshly smitten couple as they were spotted on a romantic stroll in New York on Saturday.But the doting pair could not have looked more at odds, as the 32-year-old actor sported a bristly beard while his lingerie model flame was the picture of smooth and refined elegance.
The happy couple walked hand-in-hand through the Tribeca neighbourhood of the Big Apple, wearing nearly matching smiles.Jake donned a black snap back cap and sunglasses as he stomped around in a pair of Air Jordans – demonstrating his fealty to the basketball shoe beloved by fellow stars such as Mark Wahlberg and Jessica Biel.
Completing his casual getup was a flannel shirt and loose fitting denim trousers.His 24-year-old girlfriend was a bit more fashionably attired as she strolled beside her famous beau.
Wearing knee high leather boots, the American model showed off her long legs in a thigh-skimming summer dress.But in apparent acknowledgement of the autumn temperatures, the gorgeous brunette sensibly wore a leather motorcycle jacket.
Award nominee has previously been linked to Hollywood stars including Kirsten Dunst, Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift and model Emily DiDonato.But Jake and Alyssa, who began dating in June, look to be getting serious with the actor even getting the seal of approval from his girlfriend’s father.
‘I haven’t met him yet, but he must be a great guy,’ Craig Miller, Alyssa’s father, told Celebuzz.He admitted that his daughter has been ‘shy’ about telling him details about the new relationship, but noted that he could tell she was enjoying the romance.’She sounded really happy and so ecstatic.
I haven’t heard her this happy in a long time,’ he said.Meanwhile, Gyllenhaal’s new film Prisoners is set for wide release on September 27.The American crime thriller is directed by Denis Villeneuve, from a screenplay written by Aaron Guzikowski, and executive produced by Mark Wahlberg.
