"Not only was she the first choice, she was the only choice. I wrote the movie for Sally. I wanted the character of Elisa to be beautiful, in her own way, not in a way that is like a perfume commercial kind of way. That you could believe that this character, this woman would be sitting next to you on the bus. But at the same time she would have a luminosity, a beauty, almost magical, ethereal."
"I was drawn to the picture because it has qualities that might inspire people to be gentler with one another. It’s really a story about how it is worth having love in your life at any cost. Sometimes love requires you to face your fears, or to make sacrifices, but at the end of the day it's worth it."
"The Shape of Water is not like anything else that I've ever done. It defies description."
"He is one of the few guys who does creatures who is also a full-fledged dramatic actor. Often those are two separate gifts, but Doug has them both. He’s a fantastic actor with or without makeup. If you don't have an actor inside the creature’s suit, you don't have a movie – and Doug is not a performer, he’s an actor."
"The Shape of Water has a huge soul and heart to it. It’s really unlike anything I’ve ever been a part of, in the best possible way."
"The Shape of Water is about discovery and love, releasing and finding your own inner strength, and the power of finding love in the most unusual places."
"Water takes the shape of whatever is holding it at the time and although water can be so gentle, it's also the most powerful and malleable force in the universe. That's also love, isn't it? It doesn’t matter what shape we put love into, it becomes that, whether it’s man, woman or creature."
