"It was one of the most inspiring speeches we've had. It was so much more than a lecture about what to do in an audition," a source present at the ceremony said.

The actor, who has given blockbusters like "Top Gun" and "Mission: Impossible", advised the students to make most of the available time and opportunities.

"He said that when you do finally get the chance of being in a movie, don't spend your time in the trailer," a source said.
