Watch Jacob Tremblay Charm The Pants Off Ellen DeGeneres

The 9-year-old is just adorable.

Jacob Tremblay has been charming his way through awards season and right into our hearts. 

The 9-year-old actor, who's gained plenty of buzz for his role in "Room," brought his adorable personality to "Ellen" on Tuesday morning, and we fell in love with him all over again. 

Host Ellen DeGeneres talked to the Vancouver-born child actor about everything from his favorite school subjects (Recess, in case you were wondering) to his encounter with Leonardo DiCaprio at the Screen Actors Guild Awards

You may recall seeing the below photo making its rounds online over the weekend. (Can we just take a minute to appreciate how great it is?)

When DeGeneres asked him how the photo came about, Tremblay happily explained. 

"It's kind of a funny story because everyone was standing up to cheer for someone, and I noticed Leonardo DiCaprio right in the chair behind us," he said. "So I just walked straight up to him and I noticed a huge line of people trying to meet him, but I was like, 'Oh, I'm a kid, I can skip it!'"

The young star continued, "So I skipped it and I said hi! And then I said good luck to him, and he then he said good luck to me. And he won, right? But I didn't win. So if you want to win, you just have to come up to me."

DeGeneres also asked Tremblay what it's like having a "hot dad," while also noting that he has an equally hot mom. 

"It's funny," he said. "They're just laughing at it and my mom calls my dad, now, 'hot dad.'" 

Before wrapping up the interview, Tremblay talked about his career goals and revealed, "I like writing because when I grow up I'm going to be a script writer and a director." 

He then issued a warning to Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and J.J. Abrams: "But I don't think I should tell you [my ideas] because I don't want some Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, J.J. Abrams to come and make millions of dollars off of my ideas!"

He's only 9 and he already knows the ways of Hollywood. Smart kid.
