"We always were really tight and together. We all have our distinct things. Leaf was the family clown, very witty, very smart. Mom had to work a lot, so Rainbow was the mother and the older sister and the trendsetter. Liberty was always the most physical, like an acrobat, very nimble and strong, a really beautiful girl. And Summer was the youngest, the baby of the family, with big brown eyes and blond hair, more American-looking. Liberty and Rainbow have more of an ethnic look. Rainbow definitely looks Israeli or Italian. Summer is more Waspy."
River Phoenix—US October 17, 1988
