Joseph Gordon-levitt - Joseph Gordon-levitt Asked On Date By Brave Fan

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has been asked out on a date by a cancer sufferer.

Lindsey Miller - a 26-year-old graduate student from Los Angeles who was diagnosed with pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer in 2010 - was moved by the actor's recent film '50/50', in which he played cancer patient Adam Lerner, and thinks he would be the perfect first date.

Speaking in a video posted on her blog, entitled 'I Am A Liver', Lindsey said: "I saw the cancer comedy '50/50' recently and was impressed with it, though it was difficult emotionally for me to watch.

"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 Los Angeles, it seems impossible to find him.

"Dating has been a little difficult because I'm not sure how to explain what I've been going through. Just a cup of coffee with you would me happy."

The 'Inception' actor has previously admitted he was first shocked when he read the plot of '50/50', but when he realised screenwriter Will Reiser had based the script on his own experiences of cancer, he appreciated it was "genuinely funny".

Joseph said: "When I was first offered the part, my first instinct was, 'There's nothing funny about someone with cancer'. But Will found a lot that is funny.

"It's rare to find a story with character that feel like real human beings, and Will has written a comedy that shows that, even under the most horrible circumstances, funny things do happen. This felt real, and it was genuinely funny."
