Vanessa Kensington is a fictional character in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery and, briefly, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. She was played by actress and model Elizabeth Hurley.

Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery

Vanessa Kensington was the daughter of Marie Kensington, Austin's partner from the 1960s. Born on 10 June 1970, she was among the secret agents that welcomed the thawed Austin Powers to the 1990s.[1] She was initially disgusted by Austin's politically incorrect, womanizing attitude, but soon warms to his good nature and falls in love with him. At the end of the film, she and Austin marry and are shown in their honeymoon suite.

Her weapon of choice is a Desert Eagle.

Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

In the second Austin Powers film, Kensington is quickly revealed as a fembot (Rumors circulated that Dr. Evil killed her however this is not seen in the previous film.) This is first realized by Austin when she malfunctions under the influence of a television remote control. Seemingly under the control of Dr. Evil, she self-destructs shortly afterward. Austin briefly grieves, but quickly gets over it, enjoying his freedom and taking up with Felicity Shagwell. Vanessa's replacement with Felicity is parodying James Bond films when the previous Bond Girl is never mentioned in the next film. Elizabeth Hurley was to return to play Vanessa but she turned down the role after being busy with other films.
