Ellen Page: Video Game Character's Likeness is 'Not Appreciated'
Ellen Page carries her groceries out of Whole Foods Market after doing some shopping on Monday (June 24) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The 26-year-old actress recently commented on the uncanny resemblance she bears to a character in the video game “The Last of Us.”
“I guess I should be flattered that they [Naughty Dog] ripped off my likeness,” Ellen wrote during a Reddit AMA about her similarities with the character Ellie. “But I am actually acting in a video game called ‘Beyond: Two Souls,’ so it was not appreciated.”
Naughty Dog responded to the incident on Twitter: “Wow! The reaction to @EllenPage’s AMA was overblown-After the announce trailer there WAS initial confusion leading us to revise Ellie’s look”. Ellen responded “@naughty dog I agree! Looking forward to playing #thelastofus”.
