Jacob Tremblay’s Defining Moment

“People usually say, ‘Oh, you did such a good job, you made me cry.’ But how did I make them cry? I didn’t do anything,” says Tremblay, the 9-year-old star of Room. “My mom cried when she saw the movie. She said she cried because she was so happy, but then she cried because it was so sad.” Did he tear up at his own performance? “Well,” he explains, “I’m not allowed to watch it.”

Tremblay wears a blazer and pants by Bonpoint, a hoodie by Marc Jacobs and a shirt and shoes by Gap. Photographed on location at the Empire Hotel, New York City.
