As y’all know Ewan McGregor has had the strangest of strange transitions from his now ex-wife to his side piece. Pics emerged of him playing tonsil hockey with his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and his marriage of 22 years kind of took a while to get extinguished. Alas, now it sounds like Mary couldn’t take gossipy hens like us calling her a homewrecker, so she’s flown Ewan’s coop.
Star Magazine (via The Mirror) says Mary is over Ewan because she couldn’t handle all the meanies saying she ruined a marriage. If everyone in Hollywood had Mary’s thin skin, uh, I guess there would be a lot less divorce? A source blabbed this out:
“Mary hated being labelled a home wrecker and the embarrassment it caused her. It’s sad because a year ago Ewan and his wife were in great shape and then he decided to throw it all away for Mary. Now it looks like he’s lost them both for good.”
Even though he spent the better part of the fall taking his relationship with Mary public, Ewan never filed for divorce from Eve Mavrakis until January…and even then it was kind of weird when he thanked both women in his Golden Globes acceptance speech, which Eve thought was as fucked as the rest of us. She wants sole custody of the kids even though Ewan wants a joint arrangement. Ewan was supposedly seen at Eve’s house in L.A. this past weekend.
I can see this going one of two ways. On the one hand, what might have him returning with his tail between his legs to Eve is the fact that 22 years of marriage also came without a prenup. Nothing says “I didn’t mean it” like being entitled to half the assets! But on the other hand, Ewan is kind of known as a Scottish skank, so hop on IMDb and throw a dart at the Fargo cast page, and you’ll likely land on a few names that will appear in his next award acceptance speech!
And I’m sure everybody’s waiting for Ewan’s daughter Esther to perform a follow-up to her slam song about her dad.
