Vivien: Life is short. Tell those around you how much you love them, because they may be gone before you know it.
Vivien: (on her plans after "Everwood") I think I'm gonna stop the TV shows. I don't think my family can really handle it. It's going to be too hard to move back and forth. I think I'm just going to hold off, because it takes to long, you grow a family and then you lose it all, you know? It's really hard. Maybe when I get older. I think I'm sticking to movies for a while.
Vivien: (if she weren't an actress) I'd like to cook. I want to go culinary school. You give me a cook book, and I'll pull my mom over, and I'll just cook something. I have lots of cookbooks.
Vivien: (on why she loves acting) I like the challenge, how many things I can do, how many people I can be. It's a challenge for me, and it's a lot of fun. I like to meet new people. I like to try different things. That's the kind of girl I am.
Vivien: (advice to kids who want to be actors) Just do your best...If you want to get into acting, just do your best, work hard, and have fun doing it.
Vivien: (talking about her relationship with Gregory) He's very funny. The funniest thing he's ever done is he walks up to me and he starts rapping in front of me and he knows that I don't kind of like it.
Vivien: (comparing herself to Delia, her character on "Everwood") Okay, well on the one, she's a tomboy and I'm a complete girly-girl. Let's see, well, she likes to wear hats and I kind of like to wear hats. And I have this one hat that says spoiled and proud of it, and it's so true. But yeah, we're not very much alike.
Vivien: (about 11th birthday gifts) I got Skip-It, and I got lots of cute Hello Kitty clothes, and it was very sweet of everyone.
Vivien: (on a normal non-filming day) When I am not filming, I have a school day, I just do my school, and when I finish my school I go and I play with my friends. Or I sit on the couch and watch t.v.
Vivien: (about other co-stars of "Everwood") Oh yeah. Treat Williams is very cool, and basically everyone there I'm very close with. Oh yeah, when she [Marcia Cross] got off she was very depressed when she got off of Everwood and we were very close and we were very good friends. She got me this cute little Hello Kitty bracelet - I love Hello Kitty, so that was very nice of her. Yeah, I miss her. We liked to talk.
Vivien: (on her family) Well, my mom is very cool. She's probably the coolest mom on the block. That's what they say, that's what the kids say. And my dad, he used to play softball, and my brother's into sports and my older sister, she's got a really good voice and my sister, my younger sister, we think she's going to be a lawyer when she grows up. She's very bossy.
