Amy Adams Gives Up First Class Airplane Seat to U.S. Soldier in Coach
Even though she’s been nominated for countless Academy Awards, there’s still something so un-Hollywood about Amy Adams. Proven by the fact that she recently gave up a fancy plane seat to one of our nation’s finest.
Before her plane from took off from Detroit, Michigan, the Oscar-nominated actress, who was seated in First Class, noticed a man in uniform at the gate. She then privately asked to switch seats with the soldier, who had been assigned a seat in coach.
Passenger Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN2’s “Numbers Never Lie,” told ABC News, “I noticed Ms. Adams was in first class and as I was getting seated, I saw the flight attendant guide the soldier to Ms. Adams’ seat. She was no longer in it, but it was pretty clear that she’d given up her seat for him. I was incredibly impressed, and I’m not even sure if the soldier knew who gave him that seat. I guess he will now!”
After the switch was made, the 39-year old American Hustle actress reportedly met with the soldier briefly by the cockpit. Adams, whose father is a military vet, then went back to her new seat in coach. The soldier remains unidentified.
Where was someone like Amy when that poor Salem mother was being beaten up while witnessed filmed with their camera phones instead of calling for help?
