If you've played Sony and Naughty Dog's new masterpiece of a zombie game "The Last of Us," you might have noticed that one of the main characters, a 14-year-old girl named Ellie, bears an uncanny resemblance to "Juno" and "Inception" star Ellen Page. Apparently, Page herself noticed the similarity too. And as she explained in a Reddit AMA this past Sunday, she's not happy about it.


"I guess I should be flattered that they [Naughty Dog] ripped off my likeness," she wrote in response to a question about her feelings toward "The Last of Us" and her similarities with the character Ellie. "But I am actually acting in a video game called Beyond: Two Souls, so it was not appreciated."


The game that Page mentioned she is acting in is another highly anticipated title that Sony is producing exclusively for the PlayStation 3 console. Due out in early October, "Beyond: Two Souls" is also set to be released just four months after "The Last of Us" first appeared on the PS3.

Gees bit of a stretch imo.


Leon kennedy is pretty much a watered down version of me but just because were both male, have awesome hair and infinite lives doesn't mean they copied my likeness.

i did not really see it, however, for obvious reasons she does look like the character from beyond 2 souls.

Oh for ####s' sake, not this again.







Clearly not the same. Also, Page only said like one thing in response to a question. This is hardly news. God, journalists must be so bored if they have to write this crap.

They look pretty similar to me.  They even named her Ellie...


I can see her point, but it's just free advertising to me.  What would I care if someone used my likeness?

I haven't played the final game yet, but Ellie did always remind me of her.

Anyone who's actually played the game and seen the character in motion instead of a few choice screenshots knows that they really aren't that similar.

She's just starved for attention since her career has gone nowhere.

Yes it looks like her. It looks much more like her than not like her. But isn't that a good thing? Why is this a bad thing?
