Amy Adams gives first-class airline seat to soldier, sits in coach, passenger says
Fox News ^ | June 27,2014 | Jemele Hill

Amy Adams has enchanted audiences with roles in everything from Disney musicals to the Oscar-nominated “American Hustle,” but it’s likely the ever-popular starlet just gained more fans—through a subtle act of kindness.

According to ESPN host Jemele Hill, Adams gave up her first-class seat on a flight so an American soldier could sit in the classy cabin.

Jemele Hill Just saw actress Amy Adams do something incredibly classy. She gave her 1st class seat to an American soldier.

Later, Hill told FoxNews.com, "I was on a flight from Detroit to Los Angeles...While I was in the boarding area, I noticed Ms. Adams and she was glancing at an American soldier, who was dressed in uniform. I saw her whisper something to the woman she was traveling with.

"I was upgraded to first class, where Ms. Adams was. I saw her leave her seat and then a flight attendant escorted the soldier to her seat. It was pretty obvious she'd given up her seat for him.

"I later asked a flight attendant if the soldier knew who had given up their seat for him and she told me that he did, and that Amy and the soldier met privately near the cockpit area.

"I just thought it was incredibly generous and thoughtful. I've been a big fan of hers, but now I'm an even bigger fan...

"The flight attendant even remarked to me that in all her years of service she has never seen a celebrity do something like that. Regular people, yes. But not a celeb."

Adams, whose father was in the military, settled into a coach seat for the flight.

"Ms. Adams did it so quietly and quickly that it speaks to her character," Hill added. "And somebody in coach just got a helluva seatmate!"

My wife did that a few years ago. I was sitting in steerage, she’d gotten upgraded to business class (with lay flat seat pods). It turned out 2 soldiers were sitting on the bulkhead right behind her, on their way back from Afghanistan. She and another guy gave up their seats to them; after the flight, the soldier told her it was the most comfortable he had been in 6 months. The unit patch he gave her is around here somewhere.

I always thought she was a great Actress. Now I know she is a great person too. I really don’t think she was after accolades on this.

Classy move, just rented “Her” from Red Box to watch in the morning. No idea she was in it until just looking it up after reading this thread. Amy and Rachel McAdams are two of my favorite Actresses, very pretty Girl next door looks.

That was such a good movie! I used to show it to my 4th graders as an end-of-year reward. It was entertaining and showcased so many historical figures. A lot of young kids have never seen that movie. What a shame.

A nice gesture and all but let’s get serious here. The soldier would have rather sat next to Amy in the luggage hold than to have her seat in first class without her.

The guy in coach was the big winner...

Surprised that a left-wing lesbo would do such a thing.

How do you know she’s “left wing” or a “lesbo”? Maybe she is just an American woman doing a nice, not-at-all-required thing for a service member?

I was in Houston International the other day and the lines were ridiculous when a TSA agent brought 2 Navy guys to the front for expedited processing. Lots of people were already grumpy about the long wait but not a single person said a peep about the military guys being given preferential treatment. They’ve earned any upgrades that can be offered them, whether it be quicker service or an upgrade to first class.

Good on Amy Adams for her display of class and patriotism.

then place the blame where it belongs... According to ESPN host Jemele Hill, it was NOT Amy that put it out there!

oh, yeah... she was born on a U.S. military base in Italy and grew up on a base in Colorado. so cut the girl some slack!!!
