No actor is having more fun pre-Oscars than 9-year-old Jacob Tremblay. The Room star has posted Instagrams of run-ins with Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams, Amy Schumer, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen DeGeneres and Rachel McAdams as well as a video of himself pulling off 'Blue Steel' on Conan.

But one of his most fun conver­sations was with Johnny Depp. Rather than talk about the acting craft, the Pirates of the Caribbean star wanted to talk raw fish.

"He said that we should be buddies and he asked me what my favorite sushi is," Tremblay tells THR. "It's California rolls."
