Doug Jones, the guy who plays the Amphibian man in “The Shape of Water,” is steadfast … director Guillermo Del Toro didn’t steal anything.
We got Jones Saturday night in Hollywood leaving Theater West, where he pooh-poohed reports that Del Toro lifted a scene from the 1991 film, ‘Delicatessen.”
Jones insists the film — which is nominated for Best Picture — is all original. Del Toro is also nominated for Best Director.
Truth be told … Jones doesn’t really know much about the allegation that Del Toro stole a scene, but says he knows enough about his director to know it’s not true.
Check out the 2 scenes in question — from “The Shape of Water” and “Delicatessen” … and judge for yourself.
