Showbiz Hero of the Day: Amy Adams Gave Up Her First Class Seat to a Soldier
AMY ADAMS is our SHOWBIZ HERO OF THE DAY, for giving up her first class airplane seat to a SOLDIER on a flight from Detroit to L.A. She tried to do it inconspicuously, but other passengers saw what happened.
One of those passengers was Jemele Hill from ESPN's "Numbers Never Lie". She says, quote, "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. I was incredibly impressed. [She] did it so quietly and quickly that it speaks to her character."
Amy took the soldier's seat in coach, and even took pictures of some of the other passengers.
When the press contacted Amy, she said, quote, "I didn't do it for attention for myself. I did it for attention for the Troops."
Amy's father was in the service, and she spent her early years living on military bases.
Hours Before His Arrest Thursday, Shia LaBeouf Was Chasing A Homeless Guy Around for His Hat
Several hours before being arrested for disrupting a Broadway revival of "Cabaret" this past Thursday, SHIA LABEOUF was seen out on the street . . . chasing a homeless guy around for his hat.
Witnesses said it looked like Shia thought the hat was his, and was trying to get it back. He was also acting like he knew the homeless guy, saying stuff like, "It's me, Shia" and acting, quote, "whacked out."

Miley Cyrus Got a New Dog, and Says Her Dead Dog Gave Her Its Blessing
MILEY CYRUS has a new dog. She lost her Alaskan Klee Kai, Floyd, to a coyote in April. Then her mom bought her a puppy, but it didn't work out. (An Alaskan Klee Kai is kind of like a Husky, but smaller.)
She got her new dog last week. He's a Collie named Emu Coyne Cyrus and she says she got Floyd's BLESSING.
She posted on Instagram that she had a memorial service for Floyd, and that quote, "I felt my angel Floydy give Emu his blessing. I prayed to Floyd to just give him a touch of his awesomeness, and he has."
Mark Ruffalo Says Ben Affleck Won't Let Jennifer Garner Be Friends with Him
JENNIFER GARNER and MARK RUFFALO played soul mates in the 2004 movie, "13 Going on 30". And apparently Jen's husband BEN AFFLECK wants to make sure that never happens in REAL life.
On Thursday, Mark was a guest on "Watch What Happens Live", promoting his new movie "Begin Again". And someone called in to ask if he and Jen are still friends.
According to Mark, they were GREAT friends . . . until she started dating Ben, who put a stop to it. Quote, "We had a great time together . . . But then Ben came on the scene, and that was the end of that."
Ben and Jennifer started dating right around the time "13 Going on 30" came out. It's also worth noting that Mark WAS already married at that point.
