Re: Ellen Page Calls Out ND For Ripping Off Her Likeness!

Sorry Ellen, but you don't have a monopoly on round faces, brownish-red hair or spunky attitudes and swearing. Maybe she had an argument with the old Ellie design, but the redesign has barely a passing resemblance to Ellen Page. Naughty Dog "ripped off" Ellen Page with Ellie's design the same way they ripped off Hugh Jackman when designing Joel, because obviously Hugh Jackman has the market cornered on gruff, ill-tempered men.

TL;DR Get over yourself.

The first thing that I thought about Ellie was how she reminded me of the character Ellen Page played in Juno. So there is a very strong resemblance.

Even my brother and I were like "Wow, that looks like Ellen Page," after seeing the first TLOU trailer reveal at the VGA's in 2011. Aftert hey changed her looks little, she still resembled EP, in my opinion.

 

Most video game characters resemble someone famous or in the devs personal life -- Even without their consent.

 

 

Hell, am I the only one who thought the character Robert looked like the actor Jerome Flynn?

Was that a "Rip off," or did he actually do the mo-cap for the character?

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?


Actually, I think Joel looked more like James Brolin.

And I doubt he would complain. He was a handsome son-of-a-gun when he was younger. (Still is, I suppose.)

He can be forever young... in a video game. Smiley Tongue

LOL WHAT!? Why on earth would ND need to generate more buzz? The hype going into the VGA's about The Last Of Us was already massive enough, plus with the Naughty Dog label attached to it, that was more than enough. I loved Ashley Johnson as Ellie, she was incredible. More awards definitely does not been better actor. If you think that than fine, that's your opionion but do not force it upon others and make it a statement.

Even though Ashley did a great job, maybe Ellen Page would have been better because her voice sounds a bit higher pitched, which might be a bit better suited for a child but I dunno.

Stop all this talk about Ellen, Ashley is the true Ellie, and tbh Ashley looks like a better person in real life compared to Ellen.

No way. I saw brolin in him right off the bat, and to a lesser extent bale.

I think IGN and everyone is over-reacting over Ellen's two sentences of response towards it.  She just responded that she didn't appreciate the close similarities when someone on reddit asked her.  That was it.  It was the internet that continued the conversation. 

 

And... I think Ashley Johnson did an awesome job as the voice actor of Ellie.
