Vanessa Bloome is the love interest of Barry B. Benson in Dreamworks's 2007 film Bee Movie.
She is a New York florist who saves Barry from being killed by her boyfriend Ken (who was allergic to bees), causing the former to develop an attraction towards her. Their friendship makes Ken jealous and tries to kill Barry again, resulting in Vanessa breaking up with him. After discovering that humans have been taking honey from bees for centuries, Barry decides to sue humanity. However after winning the case, bees are put out of a job and flowers begin to die.
Vanessa goes with a remorseful Barry to California to take flowers from a parade there in order to pollonate the dying flowers. After the flowers are saved and bees and humans are working together once again, Vanessa and Barry are now co-owning the flower shop.
She is voiced by Renée Zellweger who also voices Angie in Shark Tale.
