Too cute!

Room star Jacob Tremblay, 10, recently shared on his Instagram page videos from his first movie audition, which helped him get the role of the boy Blue in the 2013 film Smurfs 2.

"#TBT Blooper take from my first movie audition taped by my Mom & Dad! Try not to laugh... I couldn't! #Smurfs2 #actorslife #iwasfive @christina.tremblay."

In one clip, while rehearsing with his mother, Jacob sticks his tongue out at her and bursts out laughing. Another video shows part of the slate for the audition, which shows the actor introducing himself and stumbling on his words adorably. 

The partially animated Smurfs 2 also stared Neil Patrick Harris and Glee's Jayma Mays as Blue's parents, as well as The SimpsonsHank Azaria and Harry Potter star Brendan Gleeson.

The film marked Jacob's first major role, following a part in the TV series Motive. The Canadian actor gained notoriety last year with his role of Jack, a little boy born in captivity, in the 2015 film Room, which earned his co-star Brie Larson, who played his mother, an Oscar.

Jacob received the Best Young Actor award at the 2016 Critics' Choice Awards for his performance and also gained a large fan following on Instagram, where he has more than 444,000 followers.

He can be seen next in movies such as Burn Your Maps with Vera Farmiga and Wonder with Julia Roberts.
