Skip to comments.Amy Adams Gives Her First-Class Seat to a Serviceman
Posted on 06/27/2014 2:28:17 PM PDT by Citizen Zed
Amy Adams has classeven if it means flying coach. The 39-year-old Oscar nominee gave up her first-class seat on a Friday flight for a U.S. serviceman.
Accounts of the seat swap were posted to Twitter by fellow passengers flying to Los Angeles from Detroit. When we were waiting to board, I saw her glance the soldiers way and then she said something to the person she was traveling with, said Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPNs Numbers Never Lie, who was also on the flight. Before we took off she had vacated her seat and the flight attendant brought the soldier to her seat.

Amy is hot, hot.
I’ve always had a thing for her...
I can get behind that!
If she really had ‘class’ nobody would know about this. I’ve seen this happen many time during my road-warrior days.
The difference was, those of us giving up the seats weren’t celebrities who, intentionally or not, got publicity for doing it.
I agree with you. Hubba, hubba.
When I flew in uniform the stewardess almost always got us into first class when there was room. Korean Airlines was like heaven.
“As a possible explanation for the actress kindness, one of Hills followers tweeted that Adams was raised on a military base because her father was a serviceman.”
“When I flew in uniform the stewardess almost always got us into first class when there was room.”
Stewardess? Man,are you dating yourself. :-)
I completely understand your point. But I am also willing to cut her some slack because, for all we know, the publicity for her is a CLM (career limiting maneuver).
Yes, I’m 54 and don’t fly any more. Thank goodness. I refuse to bend to PC.
It’s not her fault people hit the twitter verse with the “news”.
It didn’t say she made a big announcement. She’s a recognizable person and the article said others tweeted about it. Not knowing what really occurred from the brevity of this story, I’ll assume she wasn’t seeking accolades, but just wanted to do something nice.
Fellow X1st Cavalryman,
The article said that someone saw her do it and told about it. It, at least by the Time story, did NOT come from her publicist. Thus I say “give her the benefit of doubt” that she did not seek publicity.
G-F, 1st Cav DivArty
You both make good points.
I’m just reflexively inclined to come down on the elites anymore.
We’ve come a long way from Stewart, Wayne, etc.
OOODLES of class, respect, and gratitude. God bless Amy Adams.
You can include yourself in my just previous post.
Won’t be the last time I cut a good-looking broad with a tight a$$ some slack.
I held the door this morning for a Korean War Veteran and his Wife when I saw them heading into the local UPS store.
I know my butt doesn’t look as good as hers, but still.....
How refreshing. Good for her. Its so much nicer to see this than the normal stories about some actor getting drunk in First Class and making an ass out of himself, or wanting “privacy” and forcing everyone around him to feel uncomfortable.
Well, then she can be my Rocky Mountain Thigh, erhhhh,..ahem, High....
According to the article the story originated from a tweet by another passenger who saw what Amy did, not from Amy.
ah yes....the prerequisite juvenile Kardashian loving pop culture freepers.....no wonder Romney and McDaniel lost..
Yeah but she sit in the middle seat between two 300lb guys with flatulence and jock itch?
Just kidding. For whatever reasons, it was a class act.
You’re probably a blast at parties.
Well, aren’t you just a ray of sunshine? LOL! :)
And she's apparently a class act, too.
"The actress, whose father was in the U.S. military, then went back to her new seat in coach."
Accounts of the seat swap were posted to Twitter by fellow passengers flying to Los Angeles from Detroit.
Sometimes, there's more to an article than just the headline... LOL! :)
I’m 62 and I’m not keen on bending for TSA.
AF members aren’t allowed to fly first class in uniform. I was offered a first class seat by the president of American Airlines while in uniform and had to tell him I couldn’t accept was appreciated if. He said he’d had other AF members take him up on it. I said “I’m a JAG. I can’t”. Not sure he understood.
I’ve already ‘mea culpa’ed’ previously.
Jesus! Didn’t know there were so many Amy Adam’s’ admireres on FR.
(Got to keep your head down!)
No one in the Army ever told us we couldn’t as far as I’m aware.
She didn’t publicize it, other passengers did. I think that was unavoidable.
So much more attractive than Kim Kardashian!!! I cannot understand why KK shows off her ugly behind.
Thought Amy was great in American Hustle
I just don’t get all jazzed up, ooohing and aaahing over “celebrities.” She didn’t do anything others wouldn’t have done but I guess when you are Hollywood, being nice to a lowly serviceperson is newsworthy. Maybe if Americans didn’t have their heads in the clouds over entertainers they would recognize that this country is going down the toilet.
Yep. Death ratting is becoming audible but hey, look, a celebrity!
I’m inclined to agree.
Neither do I.
But we must rest from the battle at times, and what better way than to see an Amy Adams movie at home on your DVD player?
She's cute as a bug, and has got great comedic timing.
You guys need to lighten up. I've been here for seventeen years and some change, and it doesn't get any better. Matter of fact, the enem
ay has gotten more audacious.
I’m not a guy. Maybe that explains it. Her butt doesn’t do it for me. And the less of my money I pour into the Hollywood cesspool that is helping to destroy our culture the more I like it.
I don’t really know who she is and I don’t really care. I consider anyone from Hollyweird to be toxic
You’re right. It’s just prohibited for AF members. Ridiculous, but there ya go.
Maybe because the USAF work with the airlines on a regular basis and many USA flagged carriers are considered a reserve fleet for emergencies or wartime?
It's not a sex thing. She's an upbeat, cheerful person on screen, and I think she's like that in real life.
Her movies don't seem to contribute to "the cesspool", but I go with DVD rentals at 2 for a buck just to starve the beast that much more.
I have never heard of this woman, but God bless her if this is what she did.
Yeah, Ooooo-kay. But you cared enough to post on this thread...
and that had nothing to do with her
Wellll, people were commenting on her butt. Maybe her scripts aren’t offensive, but if they’re produced by major studios they’re still part of the beast.
