Amy Adams was on a flight from Detroit to Los Angeles in a first class seat on Friday morning (June 27) when she noticed a soldier get on board in the coach section of the flight.
Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN’s Numbers Never Lie, who happened to be on the same flight, detailed what happened to Today via email.
“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,” Jemele 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,” she added . “I already was a fan of hers, but now I’m a bigger one after today.”
Jemele also tweeted the news from the flight.
“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.” she wrote.
