Amy Adams gives first-class airline seat to soldier, sits in coach, passenger says
Published June 27, 2014FoxNews.com



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. Hill, who co-hosts “Numbers Never Lie,” tweeted about the event from her verified account.

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.

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!"

A rep for Adams did not immediately return FOX411's request for comment.

I have loved Amy Adams work since her debut in a little movie called "Junebug" (if you haven't seen that movie, rent it tonight).  Now to discover she has as much class off the screen as on, that's a very pleasant surprise.  My favorite actors and actresses usually disappoint me with their politics.

Very few others in Hollyweird, or any liberal, would be as generous.  We went to see our son's ship return from Iraq (incidentally, it now headed back to the Persian Gulf with a 1,000 Marines).  On the flight home, I told a flight attendant the situation and she upgraded him to first class and she made an announcement about it.  The people on the flight gave him a big round of applause as he went to the front of the plane.  It was a heartwarming experience.  Sometimes, there are still random acts of kindness around. :patriot:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

Class - it always shows.

And Ms. Adams didn't blow her own trumpet here, she just did it. Class redux.
