Less than a year after hooking up with his 33-year-old costar, 46-year-old Ewan McGregor has been dumped. The actor, known for his roles in films like Trainspotting and Moulin Rouge!, met Mary Elizabeth Winstead on the set of the Netflix show, Fargo. Photographs taken of the two kissing last year sparked rumors of a romance.
But it also sparked accusations of infidelity because Ewan was still married to his wife of 22 years, Eve Mavrakis and Winstead had only just separated from her TV writer husband. Shortly after that, Ewan announced that his marriage to his wife and mother of his four daughters, Eve was ending and he took his suspected extramarital relationship public.
And now, less than a year after the McGregor family was torn apart, it seems as though Ewan's salacious relationship has ended. He was allegedly dumped by his much younger girlfriend only a few days ago.
According to sources, Mary Elizabeth Winstead broke off the relationship with the actor because she was embarrassed and tired of being labelled a home wrecker. What he did next raised some eyebrows for what is considered acceptable behavior.
Shortly after the news broke, Ewan was spotted visiting his ex-wife at her home at night.
It's unclear if Ewan's visit to his ex-wife's home means he is hoping for a reconciliation. But any form of relationship between the two will be difficult to forge, especially after the humiliating way in which he left his longtime spouse.
A source said, "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."
Regardless of the outcome Ewan is hoping for, it's obvious he has also lost his children's support. His daughters have been vocal on social media about supporting their mother through this betrayal, with one daughter, Clara, even comparing her mother to a classic car and Winstead to a horse.
