Kimmel shared a photo of Reeves standing with a luggage cart beside the young boy, along with some of the conversations he overheard.

This included such things as "Why was he in London?" ("Filming a documentary," said Reeves), and whether the actor attended this weekend's British Grand Prix?

"Yes," said Reeves, "F1! Race cars!" according to Kimmel.

When asked by the boy if he drove himself, the actor replied "Not F1, but I like riding motorcycles," Kimmel added.

According to Kimmel, the boy then asked Reeves if he lived in New York. When Reeves replied that his home is in Los Angeles, the boy pushed to find out why he had just touched down in the Big Apple.

Reeves "could not have been nicer," Kimmel wrote before sharing the selfie he took with the actor, "…especially after an international flight."
