After seeing Keanu Reeves' latest interview, people have branded it as "cringey".

Now, Reeves is one of those celebrities that could literally do no wrong. From his dashingly handsome good looks, all the way to his respectful and kind attitude, the 58-year-old has really cemented himself as one of the world's most wholesome men.

Despite this though, his latest interview has left some people feeling a little awkward. Why? Purely due to the interviewer's questions and Reeves' responses.

In a new interview with Capital radio host Roman Kemp, Reeves proceeded to answer questions about British culture, but viewers couldn't help but watch through their fingers as there seemed to be a disconnect between the actor and the questions being asked.

Have a look below:

One question saw the 30-year-old host ask whether his character, John Wick, could beat the nation’s physical education teacher, Joe Wicks, in a fight.

Now, for a lot of international folks, this would be a pretty baffling question given the fact that Wicks is pretty specific to the UK.

However, the actor did try to muster up a polite response, saying: "Fantastic! I know it’s hard to believe but John Wick doesn’t really wanna fight, so let’s just talk about life and fitness, John Wick hashtag fitness!"

Roman also asked if the acting veteran would know how much a halogen lightbulb costs, as he likened his character’s name to the hardware store Wickes - cringe-y British humor at its finest.

But again, Reeves laughed it off, saying: "For when you just have to get it done, I’m gonna Wickes my bathroom, I’m gonna Wickes my new kitchen!"

And if you thought that it would all stop there, things only got worse as Kemp, who likes to do impressions, decided to crack one out for the 58-year-old.

He explained: "So, I try to change the face first, and how I do that it, you’re about to sneeze, lean back, eyes are gone, and you’re now confused about the sneeze, and then it goes - impersonating Reeves - 'What? So you see, what I’m tryin’ to do here?'"

While Reeves was a good sport as we'd expect him to be, viewers couldn't help but comment on how squirm-worthy the entire ordeal was.

Taking to Instagram, where the clip was reposted, they expressed their opinions.

"I think the real Keanu was actually scared for his life," wrote one user, while another added: "Awkward level 11 on a scale, topping at 10."

"That’s Keanu never ever visiting the UK again," a third joked.

And this Instagram user commented that she really felt for Kemp: "I blushed for you because it felt so cringe."

Some users went in on Kemp for his interviewing skills on this occasion.

"Oh dear Roman! Normally like you but not on this occasion! You cocked up big time. Maybe stick to interviewing z list celebs!"

Big yikes.

The news comes as Reeves continues on his press junket for the fourth instalment of the John Wick series.

Speaking of the latest movie during an interview with Good Morning America, the actor said that "It's a fun character to be able to have that, you know, that John Wick kinda thing. But I don't take that home with me."

He also added that while it is an exciting project to be a part of, it has aged him.

"I'm not quite there yet," he said, adding that the fourth John Wick movie "got me closer."

"I'm definitely feelin' the age," he continued, also noting that he's "more experienced" and therefore "more efficient" in tackling the action than he was when starting out in 2014.

"I mean, I think the film is really epic, and I love playing the role," he concluded. "I love the 'John Wick' world."

John Wick: Chapter 4 is now available to watch in theaters.
