Amy Adams gives her first-class seat to U.S. soldier in coach

Amy Adams just made a soldier's day.

The actress, who was flying from Detroit to L.A., saw a man in uniform at her gate, and asked the crew to switch her first-class seat with the soldier's. After the switch, Adams met with the soldier privately before taking his seat in coach. ABC News reports that Adams' father served in the U.S. military, which may explain her kindness to her fellow passenger.

"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," passenger Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN2's Numbers Never Lie, told ABC News. "Ms. Adams did it so quietly and quickly that it speaks to her character. And somebody in coach just got a helluva seatmate!"
