Skip to comments.Amy Adams Gives Her First-Class Seat to a Serviceman

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.....
