During a recent flight, American Hustle star Amy Adams gave up her first class seat to a U.S. soldier!
Wanting no publicity, Amy Adams surprised a U.S. soldier by giving up her first class airplane seat during a recent trip from Detroit to Los Angeles. Sources say Adams did it discretely and wanted no attention for it, proving there are good-hearted people in Hollywood! She hoped it wouldn’t raise attention but almost immediately, people who witnessed the act praised her on social media.
On a five-hour flight to Los Angeles from Detroit, Adams took the soldier's economy class seat instead. Adams’ father was a serviceman so she had grown up moving from one military base to another with her family, and from this kind act it shows she respects those who serve their country.
Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN's Numbers Never Lie tweeted about Adam's kindness.
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.— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) June 27, 2014
Adams, 39, was in Detroit filming Superman vs. Batman: Dawn of Justice and had spotted the soldier at the gate and privately asked the staff to swap their seats.
One lucky passenger, Ernest Owens, wound up sitting next to her in economy class and shared a photo of the two of them on his Twitter. What a classy move Amy!
"I didn't do it for attention for myself," Adams reportedly said of the action. "I did it for attention for the troops."
