In the early days of a relationship, taking an interest in your new boyfriend's passions is typical behaviour.
And with her new romance flourishing, Halle Berry has embraced Olivier Martinez's fondness for his motorbike.
Perhaps her willingness to swap chauffeur driven limos for riding pillion has something to do with the added bonus of hiding away from the paparazzi.
That's one way to go undercover: Halle Berry models a motorbike helmet as she leaves a cafe after a lunch date in Brentwod, California
Smiling broadly beneath her impromptu disguise, she climbed on behind Martinez and the two sped off.
This week saw Berry honoured at the NAACP Awards in Los Angeles.

'I want Nahla to be proud of me,' she told reporters.
'I know she will not like everything I’ve done but I hope she will appreciate that I have always strived to be myself and I have always opted for the things I believed in.

'My hope is that I have been able to instil these values to her too.'
Halle, 44, said her most important job was her role as a mother.
