Amy Adams gave up her first class airline seat to a soldier


What makes this story so great is that it happened pretty quietly. Actress Amy Adams, whose father was in the military when she was a child, gave up her first class seat from Detroit to Los Angeles to a soldier. Amy was returning from a month-and-a-half shooting of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in Detroit.

Her act of kindness would have gone unnoticed (except to the solider himself,) if Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN’s Numbers Never Lie, had not been on the same flight and reported her generosity and thoughtfulness.

“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,” Hill said. “Once we boarded, I saw she was in first class. 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 . . . I just thought it was incredibly classy and thoughtful.” A flight attendant told Hill that after years in the air she had never seen a celebrity give up their first class seat like that, though “regular” people often do it.
