Remember when Keanu Reeves had the best reaction ever to a driver backing into his prized motorbike?

Let’s face it, most people would flip if someone ran into their motorbike.

Not Hollywood A-lister Keanu Reeves.

He was surprisingly chill about the whole thing when it happened to him in Beverly Hills.

The Canadian actor, who’s starred in movies like the Matrix, Speed and John Wick, was visiting a medical center in the Los Angeles suburb.

He parked his classic 1973 Norton Commando 750 motorcycle kerbside, presumably expecting to return to it without issue.

But that’s not what happened.

Unfortunately, a driver attempting to park on Roxbury Drive, backed her Mercedes GLK SUV into the motorcycle.

Now, the video doesn’t show if the bike was knocked over and then picked back up.

All we can see is the bike stood up using its kickstand.

According to an onlooker, it was parked legally too.

With the incident clearly drawing attention from onlookers as well as gathering paparazzi, the Beverly Hills Police were called to the scene.

When they arrived, they got details of the incident from the woman who was taking shelter in her SUV and looking rather embarrassed by what had happened.

Before long, the actor is seen making his way down the sidewalk back to his bike, where he is greeted by officers who deliver the bad news.

The star immediately checks over the bike to see for any damage, before taking the woman’s insurance details in case there’s damage to report after a further assessment. 

The actor doesn’t seem too fazed by what happened, though.

At one point, he can be seen walking around the black SUV to talk to the driver.

He even manages to raise a smile and consoles the woman, who is clearly mortified. 

After a few final words from one of the officers, Reeves then hops on his bike, fires it up, and makes his way up the road.

If there’s one thing the video tells us, it’s just how humble and down to Earth Keanu Reeves really is.
