Oscar winner Amy Adams showed her gratitude to a U.S. soldier on Friday by offering him her first class seat on a flight to Los Angeles.

The “American Hustle” star was waiting to board a plane in Detroit, Michigan when she noticed the man in uniform standing at the same gate.

She quietly approached airline representatives and asked to swap seats with him, taking his place in coach.

Fellow passenger, U.S. sports broadcaster Jemele Hill, noticed the secret swap and expressed her admiration for Adams in a post on her Twitter.com page.

Adams, whose father was a military man, was introduced to the soldier before heading to economy class to find her seat.

She isn’t the first celebrity to make such a kind gesture – comedienne Amy Poehler gave up her first class seat to a new mom and her baby on a flight to Los Angeles to New York last month.
