Louise Linton, the wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, has shared a steamy new still from her upcoming independent movie about a thief and a serial killer, which she stars in and directs.
Linton shared two new pictures to her Instagram page, featuring her on-screen girlfriend played by Shuya Chang, showing the pair locked in a series of racy embraces.
‘So lucky to have this beautiful actress in our film,’ Louise said in the caption. ‘We love you @shuya_chang. So much fun making this movie with you.’
The film ‘Me, You, Madness,’ which she also wrote, is about a young thief, played by ‘Gossip Girl’ actor Ed Westwick, who discovers he is robbing the Malibu home of a serial killer.
‘Thanks to my killer crew and cast, the movie is every bit the playful 80’s homage I dreamed of when I wrote it,’ Linton told DailyMail.com in a statement.
‘It was a joyful set, even under pressure. Ed Westwick is a phenomenal actor, collaborator, friend and creative force who became my co-pilot on many creative aspects of the film,’ she added.

The film is being made under her Stormchaser Films company and being shopped to distributors.
Linton was spotted at the Sundance film festival in January looking to drum up business for her new production company.
She has been recasting herself as a serious actress after a series of gaffes undermined her public image with a focus her acting career instead of her life in Washington D.C.
‘I’m a filmmaker, I’m not a politician,’ she told the Hollywood Reporter in January.

It was some now infamous photos of her that resulted in her being tagged the Marie Antoinette of the Donald Trump administration.
The first was an August 2017 Instagram post where she tagged the fashion brands she wore while exiting a government plane with her husband on a trip to discuss tax policy.
Critics seized on the post, to which she responded: ‘Have you given more to the economy than me and my husband? … You’re adorably out of touch.’

That was followed by a November 2017 visit to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, where Linton, clad in black and wearing gloves, held up a sheet of freshly printed dollar bills in a photo with Mnuchin.
She has participated in profiles in Elle and the Washingtonian, where she apologized, and she relaunched her Instagram feed in 2018 with a focus on charity work.
‘I was so stupid,’ Linton told Elle in a February interview: ‘I wish I could take it back.’
‘I wasn’t thinking about who I am,’ she added. ‘I wasn’t thinking, I am the wife of this person and thus I should act like the wife of this person.’
