Ewan McGregor Files for Divorce From Wife After 22 Years of Marriage

Making it official. Ewan McGregor filed for divorce from his wife of 22 years, Eve Mavrakis, on Friday, January 19.

TMZ reports that McGregor cited irreconcilable differences and is seeking joint custody of three out of four of the couple’s children: Jamyan, 16, Esther, 15, and Anouk, 6. They also share 21-year-old daughter Clara. The publication adds that Mavrakis filed at the same time, and is seeking sole physical custody with McGregor getting visitation.

As previously reported, the Fargo star, 46, has yet to comment on his split from Mavrakis, 51. McGregor and the production designer sparked breakup rumors when he was spotted locking lips with Mary Elizabeth Winstead at a London eatery in photos published by The Sun in October 2017. The costars also cuddled up at the cafe and were spotted leaving together afterward. The new couple were also seen holding hands in Hollywood in November.

Winstead, meanwhile, announced her split from director Riley Stearns in May 2017 after seven years of marriage. The Scott Pilgrim vs. the World star, 32, joined the cast of Fargo as Nikki Swango during the series’ third season.

Mavrakis finally broke her silence on the couple’s split in November when she responded to an Instagram user.  In the comments, the fan inquired about Mavrakis and McGregor’s relationship status. The fan also criticized the actor for cozying up to Winstead.

“I can’t believe Ewan would end things with u,” the fan wrote. “U are so much better than him!!!! Take him for every penny u can!!!”

Mavrakis simply replied, “What can I do?”

Ewan McGregor Splits From Wife Amidst Rumors of Mary Elizabeth Winstead Affair

Fiction has allegedly met reality for Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

Much to the chagrin of the former’s wife.

According to various reports, McGregor separated from his wife of 22 years, Eve Mavrakis, after news broke that there were photos of him making out with his former Fargo co-star.

The couple split back in May.

On Sunday morning, images of McGregor and Winstead were published in The Sun, with the scandalous snapshots depicting the actor and the actress kissing at a West London cafe.

The stars were later spotted leaving on a motorbike… together.

“They were deep in conversation and were there together for more than an hour,” a witness told the publication, adding:

“As they left she got on to the back of Ewan’s motorbike and they sped off together.”

There’s really no mistaking what’s taking place in these newspaper photos.

Some major spit is being swapped.

On Fargo Season 3, McGregor played the dual roles of twin brothers Emmit Stussy and Ray Stussy.

Winstead, considering by most to be the breakout star of the season portrayed Ray’s girlfriend, Nikki Swango.

Back in May, around the same time McGregor and Mavrakis broke up, Winstead announced on Instagram that she was leaving her husband, Riley Stearns.

No one thought too much about it at the time.

Let’s be honest after all: Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are not typically major focuses of the celebrity gossip world.

But the rumor mill is now spinning quickly due to the sordid nature of this news.

“We have spent our lives together and it has been full of joy and warmth every day,” Winstead wrote upon confirming she and her husband were going their separated ways this past spring.

She added:

“We’ve decided to move on from our marriage, but we will stay best friends and collaborators for all our days. We are still ride or die, just in a different way now.”

McGregor and Mavrakis, a production designer, met on the set of the British TV show “Kavanagh QC” in 1995 and wed later that year.

They have four children together.

Neither the actor nor the actress have commented on chatter about their romance or their failed marriages.

We’ll update this story with quotes if either side does speak out.
