Kylie Jenner and Timothee Chalamet have reportedly been making their love affair work long distance while he's away filming his new movie.

'The Kardashians' star has been dating the actor since last year, but they were recently kept apart by work commitments as Timothee has decamped to New York to film his Bob Dylan biopic ' A Complete Unknown' while Kylie remains in California with her two young children from a previous relationship.

But a source told Us Weekly about how they have been keeping their romance alive despite the distance: "Kylie and Timothee have been keeping in touch while he’s been in [New York] filming and are still together.

A second insider previously told the publication: "Everything is going great between them. They both have really busy schedules but make as much time for each other as possible.

"Timothee is always making Kylie smile. They have a very special connection."

They aded: "They have a ton of mutual friends and they like the same music. They also have a similar sense of humour. Timothee’s always making Kylie laugh, and she can’t stop smiling when she’s with him ... "

Kylie previously dodged a question about her relationship during an interview with the New York Times earlier this year. When asked if dating the actor had changed her style, she replied: "I just don’t want to talk about personal things ...

"I don’t know how I feel about that … It’s just years and years of not feeling like my face or looks are accepted. There’s nothing anyone could ever say now that would hurt me."

The pair have been attending public events together in recent months, including the Golden Globe awards back in January and an insider explained she wants to make sure she supports her partner at important moments.

The source told 'Entertainment Tonight': "Things have been going very well between Kylie and Timothée. They are extremely supportive of one other and like to be there for each other.

"Kylie is extremely busy and has so many of her own things going on, but she makes an effort to show up for Timothee. It means a lot to him to have her support and that she goes out of her way for him and the things he's passionate about.

"He is so incredibly appreciative and sees a side of Kylie that she doesn't necessarily show everyone."
