Jacob Tremblay is taking Hollywood by storm and he’s just nine years old! The tiny actor was a guest on Ellen DeGeneres‘ daytime talk show for Feb. 2, and revealed just how exactly his first meeting with Leonardo DiCaprio went down.
Move over Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and yes, Leo — there’s a new heartthrob in town and he’s just getting started! Jacob has been taking award season by storm with all of his unintentional adorable moments. While attending the SAG Awards on Jan. 30, the young actor had the pleasure of meeting the most famous man in Hollywood, Leonardo DiCaprio. Ellen, who just happens to be a good friend of Leo’s, asked Jacob what is was like meeting The Revenant star and his response was epic.
“I went up to him. I have a funny story,” Jacob started to tell Ellen. “I saw him in the chair behind us. So then I walked straight up to him. There was a line of people waiting to meet him and I thought, I’m a kid, I can skip it. So I skipped it and said, ‘Hi!'” Just wait, it gets better! Jacob then started to gush that “I said good luck to him and he said good luck to me – and he won, but I didn’t so if you wanna win, you have to come up to me.” Seriously, if this kid gets any cuter we may explode!
