On Sunday, People reported that Ewan McGregor and Eve Mavrakis are separating after 22 years of marriage.
A source from within the McGregor-Mavrakis family told People that the former couple has been broken up since May. The two have four daughters together.
People’s scoop went live shortly after The Sun put out a McGregor bombshell (or so it seemed) of its own, publishing photographs of McGregor smooching his Fargo costar Mary Elizabeth Winstead at The Good Life Eatery in London.
A customer who observed the kiss sneakily, from afar, told The Sun, “Ewan and Mary Elizabeth were there together and seemed relaxed in each other’s company…. They were deep in conversation and were there together for more than an hour.” Oh. Fuck.
Of course, the People article tried to imply a connection between McGregor’s Good Life coffee date and alleged looming divorce, noting, “the couple had separated, amid news that McGregor was spotting kissing his costar Mary Elizabeth Winstead.” But who the hell knows.
Could this be a CLUE? Or has the trail gone cold, and you weren’t following it in the first place?
Well, there’s your Ewan McGregor tabloid drama; probably it will have to last you several more decades.
