Vivien Oakland (born Vivian Anderson May 20, 1895 - August 1, 1958), was an American actress best known for her work in comedies in Hollywood in the 1920s and 1930s, most notably with the Hal Roach Studios. Oakland appeared in 142 films between 1915 and 1951.

She supported Laurel and Hardy on several occasions, and sometimes played the wife of Edgar Kennedy and Leon Errol in their series of short films. She played mostly bit roles in feature films in the 1940s before making her last film (an Errol comedy) in 1951; she died seven years later and was buried in Chapel of the Pines Crematory.
