Actress Amy Adams gave up her first class seat on a flight so an American soldier could have her seat, according to ESPN's Jemele Hill.

The sportswriter tweeted the story on Friday morning.

In an email to the Today show, Hill explained what Adams did:

"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.  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."

Another passenger on the flight also noted Adams' classy move.  He got a selfie with the actress.
