According to News92.FM in Houston:
Before her plane from Detroit took off, the Oscar-nominated actress (Amy Adams) who was booked for a first-class seat, noticed a man in uniform at the gate. She then privately asked to switch seats with the soldier, who had been ticketed for coach.Many know Amy Adams from her roles in 'Enchanted', 'Her', and most recently, 'American Hustle' which was nominated for numerous awards including the Academy Award for Best Picture. ABC News reports: After landing in Los Angeles, the actress, who tried her best to stay low-key, was approached by a news camera and said:
“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,” fellow passenger Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN2′s “Numbers Never Lie,” told ABC News. “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, Adams, 39, met with the soldier briefly and privately by the cockpit, Hill added. The actress, whose father was in the U.S. military, then went back to her new seat in coach.
“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!”
"I didn't do it for attention for myself," she told Inside Edition. "I did it for attention for the troops."Sources: News92.com/Houston and abcnews.go.com
