Amy Adams is a class act. Literally.

Before her flight departed Detroit on Friday, the actress apparently noticed a man in uniform at the gate.

Adams had been in Detroit for production of the upcoming ‘Batman vs. Superman’ movie. Before Delta flight 1706 departed for Los Angeles, she  privately asked to switch seats with the soldier, who had a ticket in coach.

Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN2’s “Numbers Never Lie,” was also on the flight and noticed the gesture.

“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!”

Adams, 39, then met with the soldier briefly near the cockpit. She then went to her new seat in coach.

“Ms. Adams did it so quietly and quickly that it speaks to her character,” Hill added. “And somebody in coach just got a helluva seatmate!”

Adams was born in Italy where her father, who was a U.S. Army Serviceman, was stationed.
