Amy Adams

Gives Up First Class Seat

to a Soldier

6/27/2014 11:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0627-amy-adams-instagram-01As if Amy Adams wasn't lovable enough ... the Oscar-nominated actress sat in coach on a flight from Detroit Thursday ... because she gave up her first class seat to a soldier.

Adams' grand gesture was done on the DL, but it happened to be witnessed by ESPN's Jemele Hill, who was seated a few rows in front of Adams. 

Hill spotted Adams eyeing the soldier as she got on the plane and later saying something to the flight attendant. Before long, Hill noticed Adams was gone ... and the soldier was in her place.

The "American Hustle" star ended up with us normal folk in coach, where a fan snapped the above photo with Adams and wrote, "Not the best picture of me but i just met Amy Adams on my flight to LAX, this is my claim to fame. #holys*** #selfies #amyadams #soexcited"

Hi Eddie. (inside joke)

Even though she should have won already, Amy is only a five-time Oscar nominee, not a winner.

Like how the A ESPN gal hijacked.Amy's incognito moment and made it all about herself....complete with photo. Sometimes people want to do something on the down low,as Amy was doing, only to have an opportunist ruin it.

As a soldier (retired), I feel I have to express a sincere thank you to her for an outstanding act to kindness to one of my brothers. Thank you, Amy.

And thank you to all of you out there who perform these wonderful acts of kindness to soldiers.

That "Thank you" you offer us when you see us in uniform means a lot to us, even if it is a bit embarrassing to us personally at times. But we accept that thank you for all of the men and women who serve and have served.

She's not that famous, probably wanted to sit with other non-famous people to see if she's still relevant- shes not.
