Ellen Page Believes The Last Of Us Developers ‘Ripped Off’ Her Likeness

The hottest game that released this month has got to be The Last of Us, although I’m sure Animal Crossing fans may have to object to that statement. Either way, if you’re a PlayStation 3 owner, you’ve probably been sinking a ton of your time into The Last of Us and you may have noticed one of the main characters in the game, Ellie, looks a lot like Ellen Page. Page certainly noticed the similarities and commented on it recently during a Reddit AMA session.

The question that sparked Page’s response asked her if she was aware of Ellie from The Last of Us, which her response wasn’t filled with happy thoughts in regards to the similarities. “I guess I should be flattered that they ripped off my likeness,” said Page. “But I am actually acting in a video game called Beyond: Two Souls, so it was not appreciated.”

Naughty Dog stated the alterations to the Ellie character were made to bring the character to resemble the actress who plays her, Ashley Johnson. Unfortunately for Page, we’re sure this similarity has confused The Last of Us fans into thinking she’s actually playing Ellie.
