Alyssa Miller and Jake Gyllenhaal have been seen together on many occasions since earlier this year, and so far it doesn’t seem like the two are breaking up any time soon. Sources say they are a great couple with a lot of in common.

At the Angel Ball at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City on Tuesday, Oct. 29, the 24-year-old Sports Illustrated model opened up about her relationship with the 32-year-old actor.

“Things are good,” Miller told Us Weekly. She and Gyllenhaal really enjoying cooking together. “I have people over all the time and we cook,” she said. “I love having people over socially and cooking dinner parties.”

Though she does love cooking, Miller said she hasn’t taught her boyfriend any dishes. “He’s the teacher,” she said with a laugh.

Gyllenhaal recently debuted a dramatically slimmer physique for his role as a struggling, freelance crime reporter in the upcoming thriller, Nightcrawler. “I knew that [my character] was literally and figuratively hungry,” he explained to Us of wanting to lose weight for the film.

However, Miller’s cooking was probably only helping Gyllenhaal reach his lean, mean goal. “I’ve been cooking really clean and healthy,” she told Us. “I’ve been making a lot of quinoa dishes.”

In addition to doing ballet for exercise and running “as much” as she can, Miller also follows a diet plan. “My rule is 80/20,” she shared. “80 percent is good and in control and super strict and then the other 20 percent you’re social and you splurge.”

Gyllenhaal, who has previously dated Taylor Swift, Kirsten Dunst and Reese Witherspoon, seems to share a mutual love of fitness with Miller. A source told Us that the couple started dating in late June after meeting “at their gym.” Gyllenhaal is also frequently spotted taking classes at SoulCycle. The End of Watch actor met his last girlfriend, Sports Illustrated model Emily DiDonato, at the spin studio in Manhattan in fall 2012.
