GS News - Ellen Page says Naughty Dog ripped off her likeness
Juno and Inception star says similarities between her and The Last of Us' Ellie were "not appreciated."

the thing I get from this, Chris Watters, voted for South Park: the Stick of Truth, over Infamous:second son in the Gamespot best of E3...
I think that "Hunger games" protagonist is way more look like to Ellie than Ellen Page...
...Image and Personality
Considering Ellen Page looks like a generic non-descript 15 year old, this doesn't seem to me to be a case of "purposeful likeness theft".
Just another Hollywood "star" bitching because a VG company creates a face that is slightly like hers. Who's the guy based on? Bruce Forsythe? (Sorry haven't played TLOU yet, don't know the names of the characters)
For the longest time, I thought The Last of Us was the video game Page was doing. I can't be the only one.
my friend kinda looks a little bit like one of the henchmen i fought this is an outrage and I want my money back naughty dog should be sued this is an injustice.
The girl that lives next door looks more like the character in the game than Ellen Page does.
Should she bash Naughty Dog too?
In fact, there's probably a million girls that look like that.
I agree. When I first saw the game, I thought it was Ellen Page and it made me excited. they should have kept her likeness, I preferred it.
Oh please! so they look a bit alike so WHAT?! my friend is similar to Joel AND?!!? I think Naughty Dog should charge her for this!!! what the hell was she thinking?! Ellie is a great character and 100% not ripped off of anyone! the similarities are so tiny!
Honestly, I don't think they look alike.
When the first screenshots for The Last of Us were coming out and people were talking about the resemblance, I didn't really agree or see it then. I mean, I'm not saying it was a crazy comparison... but it wasn't anything that really struck me.
Now looking at them side by side, and having played the entire game... I feel even more clear in saying: there is no real resemblance beyond a very basic one.
And Ms. Page should be somewhat embarrassed to be 26 years old and whining about a 14 year old virtual girl looking like her. If she was a guy everyone would find this creepy and weird, and as it stands I do anyway.
@Floymin Yeah, I've never understand that too.
@YellowJello Yeah, i know they dont they even said that they modelled it after her because they thought a person like her could tell the role well, although they made key differences to give it some originality
@Inlex I don't know a person that dosen't know her,. Do you have T.V.?
@Inlex A lot of people do actually...
@Freestylefrank This is one of the best century game please don't cry.
@Love2play99 26 IS 14 in Ellen Page-years.
@nesky I couldn't tell Page was playing Ellie from The Last Of Us until I saw this video, but in BEYOND: Two Souls Jodie looks exactly like Ellen, so I can see why she feels ripped off considering that she was acting on 2 video games at the same time.
@Ulthar_Cat I couldn't have said it any better my self agree with you100%.
@N0tYrBeezin I agree with you 100% nicely said.
@Love2play99 I actually don't know who she is either, except for the fact she is in Beyond: Two Souls. But Ellie does resemble her, but so does a friend of mine and i don't see my friend saying that Naughty Dog ripped of her face.
