Ellen Page not happy about her likeness with The Last of Us character

Ellen Page has been busy working on Quantic Dream’s Beyond: Two Souls. Not only is she doing the voice and motion capture for the main character, but she’s also lending her likeness for the character Jodie Holmes. You know what she’s not lending her likeness to? The Last of Us.

When I first saw the trailer and images for Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us, I couldn’t help but think that one of the main characters, Ellie, looked just like Ellen Page. Not only do they look similar, but their names are also similar. Coincidence?

Well, it looks like Ellen Page knows about the Ellie character, and she has said during a Reddit AMA session that they ripped off her likeness.

“I guess I should be flattered that they ripped off my likeness, but I am actually acting in a video game called Beyond Two Souls, so it was not appreciated.”

Well, Naughty Dog did change Ellie’s look slightly to make her look more like her voice and motion actress.

So do you guys think Ellie and Ellen Page look similar?

Some celebrities have taken action against companies who have used their likeness without permission. For example, McFarlane Toys once created a T2 Terminator figure using Arnold’s likeness. Since they didn’t get the rights from Arnold, they had to put some extra battle damage on face of the Terminator figure.
