Inside Mary Elizabeth Winstead And Ewan McGregor's Relationship

Ewan McGregor confessed he is happy with his girlfriend, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, after his divorce from Eve Mavrakis. His current romantic bliss, however, took a few years to achieve, according to an interview in Men's Journal. 

After 22 years of marriage to Mavrakis, McGregor filed for divorce in 2017. The couple share four daughters, Clara, Anouk, Esther, and Jamyan. Just three months after filing for divorce, the news broke that McGregor had been cheating on his wife with Winstead, his Fargo co-star. According to The Mirror, the actor's wife and family found out about the affair in a brutal way: photos of McGregor kissing his co-star emerged in October 2017, on their daughter Esther's birthday.

McGregor's daughter Clara eventually went public about her unhappiness about her father's affair, when she publicly called Winstead a "piece of trash" in an Instagram comment in July 2018.

Clara McGregor walked back her negative comment about her dad's girlfriend in August 2018. "It wasn't the most mature way to go about things, but I was angry and upset," Clara told The Times. "There had been a lot building up to it and a lot to deal with — not to make excuses or anything — but, yeah, it wasn't my finest moment."
