So she is publicly admitting at age 26 she still looks like a 14 year old girl. Well, okay then.
Nope. ND did rip off her likeness. It's more like Ellie looks like a 26 year old Ellen Page than EP looking 14.
*takes another sip of grape juice* .....don't mind me, I'm just admiring that Ellen Page pic..

Did ND base Ellie off of Ellen or was it a coincidence...?
ND said they didn't even realize it at first so they changed Ellie up to look more like the actress that plays her.
Right... I don't believe that for a second. They probably did it on purpose to generate lots of buzz at the VGAs, tweaked her model enough to not make it look exactly like her, but still like her once they revealed it wasn't her. Ellie was written a lot like many Ellen Page characters, and she even sounds remarkably similar.
Conclusion: ND wishes they could have had Ellen Page in studio to mocap Ellie for them, but couldn't afford her, so they got the next best thing (Ashley Johnson, Waitress in The Avengers) and made Ellie become Ellen Page.

Naughty Dog couldn't afford her but Quantic Dream could? Okay.

I don't think its ripped off her likeness so much. The final model looks nothing like her IMO. Ellie looks FAR too young.
The personality traits are not exclusive to Ellen Page either. I like Ellen Page but I think she is being silly about this. Is Christian Bale or Josh Brolin going to attack next saying Joel looked too much like them?
Joel looks like neither of them.
