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)

As a Marine veteran, I would have appreciated what she did instead of being called baby killer while walking through an airport in uniform. I guess those people are the ones writing in now and demeaning an act of kindness towards someone that protects their freedom and liberties and their right to be aholes.

VERY COOL of her to do that. It's all about respect and perspective. Our military are the rock stars and they should be recognized and respected as such. Adams has CLASS, manners and common sense. I am now a devoted fan and will look at her differently. Not only can she act, but she's a good person who contributes to society to make it a better place and doesn't just take.

Funny how when somebody white with a good image does something you see no racist comments but a black person no matter the image gets racially thrashed.
