amy adamsFlying is a total pain in the keister these days, but little gestures go a long way. Amy Adams went above and beyond on a flight from Detroit to Los Angeles on Friday by giving up her fancy first-class seat to an American serviceman. ESPN's "Numbers Never Lie" Jemele Hill spotted the Oscar nominee (and former Army brat) leaving her seat before the flight took off. "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," Hill told Little did Hill know that her tweet would make the news around the country in so little time. News travels fast -- especially when you're not using in-flight WiFi.

It seems likely that Adams was in Detroit to film "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," which is currently in production in the area. The movie will be out in 2016.
