SOURCE: Newsbusters reports that actress Amy Adams (last seen in the movie American Hustle) quietly gave a gift to an American soldier. Before her plane from Detroit to Los Angeles took off, “the Oscar-nominated actress, who was booked for a first-class seat, noticed a man in uniform at the gate. She then privately asked to switch seats with the soldier, who had been ticketed for coach.”

ABC had an insider from its sister network ESPN to tell the tale:

"I noticed Ms. Adams was in first class and as I was getting seated, I saw the flight attendant guide the soldier to Ms. Adams' seat. She was no longer in it, but it was pretty clear that she'd given up her seat for him," fellow passenger Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN2's "Numbers Never Lie," told ABC News. "I was incredibly impressed, and I'm not even sure if the soldier knew who gave him that seat. I guess he will now!"

After the switch was made, Adams, 39, met with the soldier briefly and privately by the cockpit, Hill added. She then went back to her new seat in coach.
