AceShowbiz - Ewan McGregor admits his divorce was like a bomb detonating in his family. Back in 2017, the "Star Wars" actor had been married to Eve Mavrakis for 22 years when pictures emerged of him kissing his 37-year-old "Fargo" co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
In the wake of the scandal, McGregor's 26-year-old daughter Clara branded the actress a "piece of trash" for having a fling with her dad, who she branded an "a******." Years later, the "Trainspotting" actor finally admitted the damage his affair did to his loved ones as saying, "A divorce in a family is a bomb going off in everyone's life - my children's lives. The, sort of, healing of that is on-going."
McGregor's divorce was finalized in 2020, with him reportedly agreeing to pay Mavrakis £40,000 a month, plus sharing royalties from his films, in settlement. The 51-year-old actor is now appearing in the "You Sing Loud, I Sing Louder" film, which also stars Clara, who wrote the screenplay. It tells a story of a father taking his daughter to rehab and is loosely based on Clara's recovery from an addiction to prescription drugs.
McGregor added to GQ magazine, "She tells me she'd come up with an idea about writing about us. At first, I was a bit nervous - I didn't know what that meant. I sat down to read it and I was blown away. It was a beautiful story about us. There's things that aren't accurate, or are bent - but they still reflect our estrangement for a while."
Clara later apologized for her remarks about Winstead, admitting they weren't her "finest hour."
McGregor and Winstead were reported to have married in April. The pair share one-year-old son Laurie together.
