Jake Gyllenhaal splits from model girlfriend Alyssa Miller

Jake Gyllenhaal and his Sports Illustrated-model girlfriend, Alyssa Miller, have called it quits after six months of dating.

The short-lived relationship reportedly fizzled out over the Christmas holidays, with sources citing distance as a primary reason for the breakup.

The couple met and began dating in Manhattan last summer, but when Jake recently relocated to Los Angeles to film Nightcrawler, the separation took its toll on the fledgling romance.

The 33-year-old actor is famous for his fleeting relationships with high-profile celebrities, including a highly publicized fling with Taylor Swift in 2012.

Earlier this week, Jake Gyllenhaal was in Toronto promoting Enemy, a film directedby Quebec nativeDenis Villeneuve, and appeared on George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight sporting a scruffy beard and a longer hairstyle.
