The ball's in your court, Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

Lindsay Miller, a 26-year-old woman diagnosed with pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer, recently became a viral web sensation when she asked the actor, 30, out to coffee via YouTube.

Miller was moved by Gordon-Levitt's portrayal of a cancer victim in his recent film 50/50 (costarring Seth Rogen).

She wrote on her blog, "I was impressed with [the movie], though it was difficult emotionally for me to watch."

She continued, "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."

Her solution? YouTube! "It's ridiculous," Miller wrote of her adorable invitation to the star. "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?"

But Miller's would-be date still hasn't seen her proposal. "Two other people were telling me about this, but no I have not heard about it until then," Gordon-Levitt told E! News.

"I haven't seen the video," he said. "I'll have to watch it."
