Canadian actress Ellen Page believes that developer Naughty Dog "ripped off" her likeness for the character of Ellie in its recently released videogame The Last of Us.

In a Reddit Ask Me Anything, Page was asked the back to front question, "Are you aware how much you look like Ellie from The Last of Us"? And, "Would you have taken the role as [sic] Ellie if approached?"

Page responded, "I guess I should be flattered that they ripped off my likeness, but I am actually acting in a videogame called Beyond: Two Souls, so it was not appreciated."

According to review aggregation site Metacritic, The Last of Us is currently the most critically acclaimed game of 2013.

In its 9.5/10 review, Gameplanet declared The Last of Us "extraordinary", and said, "Naughty Dog has outdone itself, and most of the industry in the process."
