Ewan McGregor ignores wife, snogs Mary Elizabeth Winstead at Critics' Choice Awards

Ewan McGregor moves to make the split official as he files the divorce papers from his wife of 22 years, Eve Mavrakis.

The 46-year-old Scottish actor cites irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the split. Reports say the estranged couple have been separated since May of the past year. Indeed, the papers cites May 28 as the date of separation.

McGregor is asking for joint custody of their children, according to TMZ. On the other hand, 51-year-old Mavrakis gave her answer at the same time, asking for sole physical custody with visitation rights allowed to her estranged husband.

Represented by Fahi Takesh Hallin, the renowned actor of Star Wars prequel trilogy, Moulin Rouge, and Fargo states that he is amenable to paying spousal support. Sources reveal that the pair has no prenuptial agreement, so assets acquired throughout the marriage should be divided evenly between them.

Mavrakis is represented by Laura Wasser.

McGregor, Winstead Relationship Revealed

Reports of the couple's separation came as early as October of 2017, when photos surfaced of McGregor kissing his Fargo castmate Mary Elizabeth Winstead in London. Since then, the two have made their romance public, even sharing a kiss at the Critics' Choice Awards when McGregor won Best Actor.

The two met after being cast as lovers in the hit FX television show Fargo.

Winstead, 32, was previously married to Riley Stearns. The couple parted ways in May 2017.

McGregor's Family Reveals Devastation

The McGregor children have mostly kept mum on their relationship with their dad until 15-year-old Esther McGregor posted a song on Instagram expressing her heartbreak at her father's actions. The song is entitled "Made You A Man," and the couple's daughter wrote a caption that reveals she wrote it herself.

"Seeing those pictures," the teenage girl sings the heartfelt lyrics. "They're making me cry."

"Happy birthday to me, am I right?" she continues, referencing the photos of her father kissing Winstead on her birthday. "And I don't know to forgive. I don't know if I can. Ruining me. Show me your man. And I don't know to forgive. Don't know if I can."

Earlier, after a Golden Globes Awards speech where McGregor thanked both his ex-wife and girlfriend, Mavrakis also hinted at her feelings.

"No, I did not like his speech," the French production designer responds when asked about the very public declaration amid an already issue-wrought awards show. "For the same reasons you are here asking me about it. I am not going to say any more."
