Ellen Page Doesn't Sound Too Pleased With The Last Of Us Likeness

Actress less than impressed with Naughty Dog's Ellie
The Last of Us is a truly remarkable game, but it hasn't gone down well with everyone. Actress Ellen Page — famous for her roles in Juno and Inception — has voiced her annoyance at the similarity between herself and lead character Ellie.
Speaking during a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" session, Page said:
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.
Naughty Dog redesigned Ellie before the game was launched, although it insisted that the changes weren't related to her likeness to Page.
While we can understand Page's issue — especially when, as she points out, she's starring in her own video game this year — she's got it relatively easy. Poor old Arnold Schwarzenegger has been getting his likeness ripped off for decades.
