She is adorning bus stops and billboards across the capital in the poster for Secretary, a well-received American independent movie that was released in cinemas last year, and is now making an appearance on DVD. In the film she plays a masochistic young woman called Lee; on the poster, Lee is pictured bent over, in short skirt, seamed stockings and high heels, the words 'Assume the position' stamped across her elevated backside.
