Disney's Brave: Merida or Rebekah Brooks

There has been a lot of talk in the media recently about the character Merida in Disney's new movie Brave and how she looks exactly like the former chief executive of News International, Rebekah Brooks.
So yeah, I thought I'd offer my own opinion on the resemblance.

At a first glance, it looks like Merida is an exact cartoon copy of Miss Brooks. Both have long frizzy curly red hair that tousles about their shoulders getting in the way of their face. Looking closer we see that Merida's hair is actually slightly more orange, more voluminous and that she is, in fact, clutching a bow instead of a handbag.
I'm assuming the resemblance is a coincidence. After all it makes sense that an unruly Scottish heroine would have fizzy red hair. However, it does seem unfair that if anyone gets to be made into a Disney character, intentional or otherwise, it gets to be Rebekah Brooks. *pfff* Well, Either way, I dislike the hair.

Here's a good article i found that talks more about the Merida/Brooks resemblance.
