Ellen Page Did Not Appreciate Naughty Dog Using Her Likeness for The Last of Us

The Last of Us Ellie

When the first promotional materials for Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us made the rounds, female lead Ellie shared a bit more than a passing resemblance to actress Ellen Page. That’s not the case anymore, but that doesn’t mean Ms. Page approved of the situation.

In a recent AMA on Reddit, the Beyond: Two Souls star shared her opinion on her likeness appearing in The Last of Us. “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,” she wrote.

To be fair, Ellie’s look in the game was changed before Beyond: Two Souls was announced. It’s understandable how Ms. Page might find the non-contracted use of her face in a video game a bit disconcerting, particularly since she was starring in a game of her own officially. However, now there’s little in common with Ellie and Ellen, so we’re not sure what all the hub-bub is about.

What do you think? Does Ellen Page have a valid complaint, or is Ellie different enough in your eyes?
