Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Louisa Linton, shares a steamy photo of her upcoming film

Louise Linton, wife of finance minister Steven Mnuchin, has shared a steamy new still from her upcoming independent film about a thief and a serial killer, in which she shines and directs.

Linton has shared two new photos on her Instagram page with her friend on the screen, played by Shuya Chang, who shows that the couple is locked in a series of spirited hugs.

& # 39; I am so lucky to have this beautiful actress in our movie, & # 39; said Louise in the pictures. & # 39; We love you @shuya_chang. So much fun to make this movie with you. & # 39;

She plays with & # 39; Gossip Girl & # 39; actor Ed Westwick in the film & # 39; Me, You, Madness & # 39;, which she also wrote, about a young thief (played by Westwick) who discovers that he is robbing the Malibu house of a serial killer.

& # 39; Thanks to my assassin crew and cast, the film is at least the playful 80 & # 39; s homage I dreamed about when I wrote it, & # 39; Linton told DailyMail.com in a statement.

& # 39; It was a joyful set even under pressure. Ed Westwick is a phenomenal actor, co-worker, friend and creative force who became my co-pilot of many creative aspects of the film, & she added.

Another photo from the film shows Westwick and Linton side by side on a sofa – he looks bruised and beaten up while being glamorous in a long yellow dress, high heels and full of hair and makeup.

The second shows her consultation with Westwick in her directorial debut.

The film is made under her Stormchaser Films company and is sold to distributors.

Linton was spotted at the Sundance film festival in January and wanted to look for things for her new production company.

She recreated herself as a serious actress after a series of blunders undermined her public image with a focus on her acting career rather than her life in Washington D.C.

& # 39; I am a filmmaker, I am not a politician & # 39 ;, she told the Hollywood Reporter in January.

It were some notorious photos of her that resulted in the Marie Antoinette being tagged from the board of Donald Trump.

The first was an August 2017 Instagram post, where she tagged the fashion brands she wore while leaving a government plane with her husband on a trip to discuss tax policy.

Critics grabbed the post, to which she responded: & Have you given more to the economy than me and my husband? … You are no longer in contact. & # 39;

That was followed by a visit to the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in November 2017, where Linton, dressed in black and wearing gloves, held up a sheet of freshly printed dollar bills on a photo with Mnuchin.

She 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.

& # 39; I was so stupid, & # 39; Linton Elle said in an interview in February: & # 39; I wish I could take it back. & # 39;

& # 39; I didn't think about who I am & # 39 ;, she added. & # 39; I didn't think I am this person's wife and therefore I should behave like this person's wife. & # 39;
