Amy Adams was traveling from the Detroit set of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice to Los Angeles, Friday morning, when she gave up her first-class seat to a U.S. soldier and enjoyed her flight in coach.
Despite the actress trying to keep the random act of kindness under wraps, a fellow passenger, ESPN 2's Jamele Hill, broke the news on Twitter.
Just saw actress Amy Adams do something incredibly classy. She gave her 1st class seat to an American soldier. I'm an even bigger fan now.

"When we were waiting to board, I saw her glance the soldier's way and then she said something to the person she was traveling with," Hill said in an email with Today.com. "Once we boarded, I saw she was in first class. I was upgraded to first class and she was a couple rows behind me. I think she must have said something to the flight attendant, because before we took off she had vacated her seat and the flight attendant brought the soldier to her seat."
A patron in coach was also pleasantly surprised by the five-time Academy Award nominee that sat to his left.

Ernest Owens told Inside Edition, "It was a random act of kindness. She said it was something that she always wanted to do..."
Adams told Inside Edition, who approached her for a statement after the plane landed, that she didn't do this for attention for herself, but for attention for the troops.
You're one class act, Ms. Adams!
