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”.

    Jared, please check your sources instead of mindlessly copying bullshit!

    The question on reddit was referring to whether she was aware that ANOTHER game had a character who looked like her.
    “This has almost certainly been made clear to you several times, but are you aware how much you look like Ellie from “The Last of Us,” a video game which came out about a week ago. She even sounds like you. So much so that almost everyone assumed it was you playing the role.”

    To which she answered that she doesn’t appreciate the likeness because she already stars in another game called “Beyond: Two Souls”.
    “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.”

    Why does this girl dress like a boy? If she’s trying to be incognito, she failed.

    @Nancy:
    She’s been dressing like that all her adult life, as do millions of other women. Since when are a shirt and jeans male-only attire? Sexist much?
