Amy Adams showed respect for those in uniform by giving up her first class seat to a soldier during a flight on Friday.
The 5-time Oscar nominee’s gesture would have gone unnoticed had it been there was no ESPN journalist named Jemele Hill on that plane, which was on its way to Los Angeles from Detroit.
‘Just saw actress Amy Adams do something incredibly classy. She gave her 1st class seat to an American soldier. I’m an even bigger fan now,’ Hill tweeted.
‘Ms. Adams did it so quietly and quickly that it speaks to her character,’ Hill later told ABC News. ‘And somebody in coach just got a helluva seatmate!’
‘When we were waiting to board, I saw her glance the soldier’s way and then she said something to the person she was traveling with. Once we boarded, I saw she was in first class,’ Hill told The TODAY Show via email. ‘I was upgraded to first class and she was a couple rows behind me. I think she must have said something to the flight attendant, because before we took off she had vacated her seat and the flight attendant brought the soldier to her seat.’
Adams ended up in the economy class, where fans had a good time taking selfies with her.
‘Told @InsideEdition why Amy Adams was classy for giving up her 1st class seat to the soldier sitting next to me! :),’ tweeted another passenger Earnest Owens, along with the photo below.
Adams was born and raised in military bases … now you can deduce where that came from.
