The Fourth of July is a week away—but Amy Adams is already especially patriotic!
It’s been revealed the five-time Academy Award nominee gave up her first seat class to an American soldier while flying from Detroit to LA on Thursday, June 26.
While Amy’s random act of kindness was done purely from the goodness of her heart, word quickly spread of her good deed after Jemele Hill, host of ESPN’s Numbers Never Lie, saw it all go down and took to Twitter to share the touching moment.

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,” Jemele told Today.
“Once we boarded, I saw she was in first class. I was upgraded to first class and she was a couple of 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.”

The TV personality went on to explain Amy was discreet in her act as a good Samaritan as the soldier wasn’t told who had voluntarily switched with him at first. Although a flight attendant told Jemele the man in uniform did eventually get to thank Amy personally.
“I just thought it was incredibly classy and thoughtful,” Jemele said.
“I already was a fan of hers, but now I’m a bigger one after today.”
