Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s role in the dramedy 50/50 has touched a lot of people, including Lindsey Miller, a woman who posted a video on YouTube expressing her appreciation for the actor’s part in the movie where he plays a 20-something male battling cancer.

Lindsey, like JGL’s character, is a 26 year old with cancer who is having trouble finding a date. “As you might recall, I saw the cancer comedy 50/50 recently and was impressed with it, though it was difficult emotionally for me to watch,” she says in the video. 

The young woman who is living with the unfortunate disease decided to take a chance and ask JGL out on a date via YouTube.  

“Also, I didn’t admit this in my first post about it, but after seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s performance and seeing/reading some of his subsequent interviews about the film I thought, ‘This guy gets it. And he’s cute. I wonder if I could ever run into him somewhere.’ But even though I live in LA, it seems impossible to find him.”

Lindsey continues in her video saying “life is short” and asking the Golden Globe nominee to coffee. “Maybe YouTube can help…OK, I admit: It’s ridiculous. And it feels like I’m making a big leap from being an anonymous cancer ‘liver’ a few months ago to now starring in my own video. But life is short. So, why not?”

At the NYC premiere of 50/50, Joseph talked with Celebuzz about accepting the role. “It just felt real to me,” he said of the film. “And that’s the kind of film that I want to be apart of, something that feels real.”
