Actress sits in coach instead...
Amy Adams showed some serious respect for the military during a flight from Detroit on Thursday. ABC News reports that the Oscar-nominated actress gave up her first class seat to an American soldier, taking his coach seat instead.
The site spoke with fellow passenger Jamele Hill, the co-host of ESPN2's Numbers Never Lie, who said that Adams noticed a man in uniform at her gate and privately asked to switch her seat with him. Hill told the site, "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!"
Adams met with the soldier privately by the cockpit and then went back to the coach seat for the flight. Hill added, "Ms. Adams did it so quietly and quickly that it speaks to her character. And somebody in coach just got a helluva seatmate!"
