Anne Marie Pohtamo (born 15 August 1955, Helsinki, Finland) is a Finnish actress, model and beauty queen who was the second woman from Finland to capture the Miss Universe crown. She claimed the Miss Universe crown in 1975 at the pageant held in El Salvador.
Pohtamo was crowned by Miss Universe 1972 Kerry Anne Wells, not by her predecessor Amparo Muñoz, as Muñoz resigned after six months reign, when she refused a trip to Japan. She became the second Finn to claim the title of Miss Universe, 23 years after Armi Kuusela. Pohtamo later pursued a modeling and movie career, being credited either as Anne Pohtamo or as Anne Pohtamo-Hietanen. She married Arto Hietanen in 1980, and is a mother of four.
