Jacob Tremblay's adorable post-Oscars message to to Sofia Vergara

By Ainhoa Barcelona

Jacob Tremblay has charmed the world with his outgoing personality and supportive nature towards famous pals like Room costar Brie Larson. But at the Oscars on Sunday night (Feb. 28), the pint-sized star paid another leading lady, Sofia Vergara, the cutest complement of all.

Jacob was reunited with the Modern Family beauty at Los Angeles' Dolby Theatre. The nine-year-old went over to greet the stunning Latina and the sweet moment was captured on camera.

Jacob scored even more points when he paid 43-year-old Sofia the nicest compliment ever.


"I have aged SOOO much, but @SofiaVergara hasn't aged a day!" wrote Jacob Tremblay

"I have aged SOOO much, but @SofiaVergara hasn't aged a day! #Oscars #TB #regram #myfirstmovie," Jacob captioned an Instagram collage.

He uploaded a couple of throwback pictures from when the pair starred in The Smurfs 2; Sofia's scene was later cut from the movie.

The collage also showed Jacob, who looked dapper in an Armani suit, gazing at Sofia as she posed on the red carpet.

Apart from Sofia, Jacob can, naturally, add Brie Larson to his list of famous friends. Jacob played Brie's five-year-old son Jack in the drama Room.

When Brie was crowned Best Actress on the night, she turned to her young co-star who was seated behind her in the audience, and gave him a high-five and a hug.

Taking to the stage to deliver her acceptance speech, Brie thanked Jacob, calling him "my partner through this in every way possible".

While Jacob was not nominated for an Oscar, he did manage to scoop the Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Young Performer in January.

"This is super cool, this is the best day of my life," the Canadian actor said. "I first want to say thank you to all the critics who voted for me. It must be a super hard vote because of all the other great actors in this category."

"I just want to thank my parents. I love them very much," he added, before revealing he would be keeping his new trophy in pride of place in his bedroom – on a shelf right next to his Millennium Falcon.

Jacob was also nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
