It's clearly where he feels most at home. As Keanu Reeves was seen in uncharacteristic smiling pose as he chatted to a couple of workers on a film set.
The actor who has become notorious for the many pictures of him chilling on his own has finally left his solitary existence behind him - aided in part, by his return to work.
Earlier he was in typical solitary pose as he sucked hard on his cigarette, but it didn't stay that way for long, as two women stopped to chat with the actor.
And later he could be seen chomping on a cup cake - but rather than a celebratory one, like the one he had on his birthday, this time he was eating for the cameras.
Keanu will star alongside actresses Bojana Novakovic and Adelaide Clemens in the film which follows a day in the life of Reeves' character and his two cohorts.

The film observes the trio's adventures as they live life on the fringe, immersed in sex, drugs and indecision.
Clearly nothing like the solitary actor's own life.
The actor had been the subject of a Facebook campaign called 'Cheer Up Keanu' .
Daniel Murphy, 21, who created the Cheer Up Keanu Facebook page to advertise calls for a new holiday to be established.
He said: 'I don't really think he's that sad; I just think his work is under-appreciated.'

Reeves' representatives want the world, and Keanu's legions of fans to know that their client isn't depressed, in the slightest.
Meanwhile another of Reeves projects may fail to get the go ahead.
Cowboy Bebop is a movie based on the anime series that Reeves was attached to star in and produce.
Last year he said the live-action version was being rewritten in order to reduce the massive cost of making the film.
And the actor said very little has changed about the dilemma facing the film.
Reeves told MTV News: 'Every time [the script] comes back, it's still a gazillion dollars. Every time they try to pare it down, it's like, 'Well, that's not the film, what about the other kajillion?'
And the 46-year-old Reeves admitted that he might be getting a little too old to play bounty hunter Spike Spiegel, the story's main character.
He said: 'I'm getting too old to play Spike...'now I'd play Spike's older brother.'
