Dear Steve Harvey, thank you for mangling the Miss Universe pageant and thrusting my name into the public spotlight. Signed, Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez.

The beauty queen has been capitalizing on her newfound fame ever since Steve flubbed her name at the Miss Universe pageant last December. Now, she's headed for Hollywood!

TMZ is reporting that Ariadna has signed on to be Vin Diesel's love interest in "xXx: The Return of Xander Cage." It will be her first movie role.

The website says that she's hardly a throw in, too, claiming that she will be in six scenes and has three pages of dialogue.

The brunette bombshell is set to begin filming on March 1 in the Dominican Republic. The film will also feature Ultimate Fighting Championship's outspoken bad boy Conor McGregor.

For Ariadna, Steve's flub made her more famous than if she had actually won.

While hosting the Miss Universe pageant in Las Vegas, the affable funny man mistakenly named Miss Colombia the winner. She was actually wearing the sash, until, well, she wasn't.

And then the awkwardness began.

"Ok folks, I have to apologize," the defeated host said as Ariadna waved to the adoring crowd, flowers in hand, believing that she was declared the winner (because she was, albeit accidentally.) "The first runner up is Colombia. Miss Universe 2015 is Philippines."

People were outraged at Steve's mistake with many saying that Miss Colombia and Miss Philippines should be co-winners.

In January, Ariadna finally spoke with Steve on his TV show.

"You're the one person that I really wanted to talk to," Steve told her. "Because of the mistake I made, I cast you into a spotlight and a place I never intended to….I just want to say how sorry I am…and that it was you."

He then asked Ariadna how she thinks he handled the situation. She chuckled and said, "You need to learn how to read cards, because it was on the card. You wanted me to win, you know."

She went onto say, that fateful night was "a nightmare."

"It was the worst night of my life, but also the best," she said. "I have the picture with the crown and the Miss Universe sash."

Side note: anyone know what Miss Universe's actual winner Miss Philippines is doing these days? Neither do we.
