Elizabeth Hurley isn’t too keen to star in another Austin Powers movie


Originally playing British agent Vanessa Kensington in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery in 1997, Hurley opened up about her reservations of appearing in another Austin Powers film in a new interview.

“I don’t think anybody wants to step back and recreate something when they’re 20 years older,” Hurley candidly told BuzzFeed. “I think if there’s a way that something’s organically progressed, but I don’t think anybody wants to run around in costumes they were wearing 20 years ago.”

Rumours of an Austin Powers reboot started last year when Mike Myers said that a potential fourth instalment was “looking good”.

Hurley, who is set to star as Morgan le Fay in Marvel’s Runaways, noted the irony of filming the show, as she rocked a costume similar to one she wore in the 2000 film Bedazzled.

“Mind you, I have to say in Marvel I was aware that I was wearing a green version of my red costume in Bedazzled,” she noted. “The leotard is back!”

Hurley then told an interesting story of a Runaways crew member who previously worked with her on Bedazzled.

“When we started shooting (Runaways), there was a very nice man who was blowing my hair with one of those wind machines. Then he came up to me and went like, ‘The last time I blew your hair with the wind machine was on Bedazzled 20 years ago at Fox Studios. I think you’re wearing the same costume!’”

Portraying the villain in season 3 of the Hulu show, Hurley noted her minimal knowledge of the comic book series.

“It was a very fresh and interesting thing for me to do. I hadn’t previously really been a comic book fan,” she explained. “It was stepping into a brand new world, and of course a brand new world of fans who are in a league of their own.

“I love it, and I love being a supervillain. Even though I am quite a mean one, every day was hysterical at work.”
