There's a fine line between Amy Poehler's Parks & Rec character Leslie Knope and Amy Poehler herself. The difference being her name. Poehler's a do-gooder, folks, and her latest act is just the best.
While on a plane from Los Angeles to New York, Poehler gave her first class seat to a mother juggling her luggage and child. A passenger on the plane told Star Magazine: "The woman was struggling with her baby, diaper bag and luggage, so Amy offered to swap seats and sit in coach instead! The woman kept refusing the offer, but Amy wouldn’t budge," they continued. "She literally had to push the mom into her first class seat. It was really sweet."

"Really sweet" being an understatement here. Poehler's always been a gem of a person. No shade to Jennifer Lawrence or all the other girls vying to be America's resident BFF, but Poehler is the original.
