Ewan McGregor cites 'irreconcilable differences' in divorce papers with wife of 22 years Eve Mavrakis
Ewan McGregor has reportedly filed for divorce from his wife of 22 years Eve Mavrakis.
The 46-year-old Scottish actor split with his wife last May and is believed to be dating his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, famously thanking both of them during his Best Actor acceptance speech at the Golden Globes earlier this month. Despite the positive words he had for his estranged wife, he has now filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences", according to TMZ.
The pair have four children together: 16-year-old twins Esther, Anouk (six) and a daughter Clara, who is 21 and therefore not included in the custody arrangement.
He is seeking joint custody of their three minor children, whereas Eve (55) is asking for sole physical custody with visitation. She is being represented by Hollywood powerhouse attorney Laura Wasser, who has represented Angelina Jolie in her split with Brad Pitt, Kim Kardashian with ex-husband Kris Humphries, as well as Tom Cruise, Steven Spielberg and Britney Spears.
Their date of separation is listed as May 28, 2017. He did not announce the separation and was pictured kissing Winstead in October.
McGregor and Mavrakis did not sign a pre-nuptial agreement and will be obligated to split their assets 50/50 in accordance with California law.
