Gossip Girl alum Ed Westwick stars opposite Louise Linton in a chaotic Wall Street movie; Me You Madness

According to recent reports, Donald Trump’s former Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s wife Louise Linton is making her directorial debut, with a film that highlights the issues the US stock market is facing right now. Her film Me You Madness, which she has written, directed, produced, and starred in, tells a story if a “materialistic, narcissistic, self-absorbed misanthrope” hedge fund manager Catherine Black. Linton stars opposite Gossip Girl alum Ed Westwick who plates the role of Chuck Bass in the teen series. 

 

The trailer for the new film Me You Madness was shared this week in the midst of the chaos that ensued at Wall Street; which was perfect timing to make an extremely tone-deaf entrance in Hollywood. At the beginning of the trailer, Linton can be seen saying “My name is Catherine Black. You may think that I’m a materialistic, narcissistic, self-absorbed misanthrope. I don’t deny it. I’m a hedge fund manager. I’m addicted to fashion, the accumulation of money, exercise, and sex. My life is incredible.” 

 

Her husband, a former hedge fund manager himself, told The New York Times, “I watched Louise create this film from the first draft to final edit. I’m proud of her drive, tenacity, and spirit. The movie is highly entertaining and very good fun.” Prior to his time in the Trump administration, he worked as a Goldman Sachs banker and Hollywood film producer.

 

The New York Times reporter, who has already seen the film, described it as a “sort of cinematic middle finger to the haters.” “There will be people who love it and people who hate it,” Linton told the outlet. “But I don’t care what people say. I’m proud of my little film. It’s a potpourri of silliness.”
