Meaney, so often a supporting player, on taking lead in Stephen Frears' "The Snapper": "In terms of having to be the lead in a picture, I'm glad it was a sort of nice, small, offbeat piece, with a genius director. I'm not great on responsibility. I remember when I did a play in New York: Michael Gough, the English actor, talked about the joys of being a supporting actor. You don't have the awful responsibility of sink or swim on you. And you get to play all these marvelously different and bizarre characters." --quoted in THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 21, 1993

"I don't understand this need Americans have to label everything. I guess I understand it from a marketing point of view, but for an actor, it's all kind of maddening. I don't feel like I'm like anyone out there, but I've been called everything from a young Gene Hackman to an old Sean Penn." --Meaney to the NEW YORK POST, May 11, 1995

"I never believe I'm going to make a picture until it's made. I was signed to do a number of films that I was absolutely certain they were going to make, which were never made. Literally I never believe that a project is going to happen until it's over." --Meaney quoted in CINEFANTASTIQUE, November 1998
