Austin Butler was sitting at the front of the room at the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Feb. 26, and he had the honor of escorting some of the lovely ladies in the audience onstage during the show. When Sally Field hit the stage to accept her Lifetime Achievement Award honor from Andrew Garfield, Austin was quickly by her side to make sure she got onstage ok. He took her arm and gently led her up the stairs so she could give her acceptance speech.

Later on in the show, Austin was put to work once again when Jennifer Coolidge won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series. Jennifer also got a helping hand from Austin, who could be seen making sure that he was ready to go once she made her way to the front of the room. Once again, Austin made sure the actress was safely onstage without tripping. The perfect gentleman!
