Fiction has allegedly met reality for Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Much to the chagrin of the former’s wife.
According to various reports, McGregor separated from his wife of 22 years, Eve Mavrakis, after news broke that there were photos of him making out with his former Fargo co-star.
The couple split back in May.
On Sunday morning, images of McGregor and Winstead were published in The Sun, with the scandalous snapshots depicting the actor and the actress kissing at a West London cafe.
The stars were later spotted leaving on a motorbike… together.
“They were deep in conversation and were there together for more than an hour,” a witness told the publication, adding:
“As they left she got on to the back of Ewan’s motorbike and they sped off together.”
There’s really no mistaking what’s taking place in these newspaper photos.
Some major spit is being swapped.
On Fargo Season 3, McGregor played the dual roles of twin brothers Emmit Stussy and Ray Stussy.
Winstead, considering by most to be the breakout star of the season portrayed Ray’s girlfriend, Nikki Swango.
Back in May, around the same time McGregor and Mavrakis broke up, Winstead announced on Instagram that she was leaving her husband, Riley Stearns.
No one thought too much about it at the time.
Let’s be honest after all: Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are not typically major focuses of the celebrity gossip world.
But the rumor mill is now spinning quickly due to the sordid nature of this news.
“We have spent our lives together and it has been full of joy and warmth every day,” Winstead wrote upon confirming she and her husband were going their separated ways this past spring.
“We’ve decided to move on from our marriage, but we will stay best friends and collaborators for all our days. We are still ride or die, just in a different way now.”
McGregor and Mavrakis, a production designer, met on the set of the British TV show “Kavanagh QC” in 1995 and wed later that year.
They have four children together.
Neither the actor nor the actress have commented on chatter about their romance or their failed marriages.
We’ll update this story with quotes if either side does speak out.
