Amy Adams gave up her first-class seat to a US serviceman today on a Delta flight from Detroit to Los Angeles. ESPN's Jemele Hill, also on the flight, first called attention to the move via tweet, then elaborated in an email to Today. "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," recounts Hill. Once on board and seated in first class, Adams spoke to a flight attendant, vacated her seat for the serviceman, and headed back to coach. The five-time Oscar nominee was born on a military base during her dad's stint in the military, notes E! Online.
