Ewan McGregor has settled his divorce from wife Eve Mavrakis after 22 years but not before his eldest daughter could have her say on his new girlfriend.
The 49-year-old Trainspotting star finalised the divorce, which has been going on since January 2018 and The Blast has reported the settlement after obtaining new legal documents.
The couple have reportedly submitted details of their financial settlement to court, so that the divorce can be rubber stamped.
The biggest drama of the separation has come from Ewan’s eldest daughter Clara McGregor, who has taken aim at his new girlfriend, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, in a social media post.
The trouble started after a fan account shared a photo of Ewan kissing Mary Elizabeth at the 2014 Vanity Fair Oscars party.
This was July last year and Clara was soon to share her thoughts on seeing the kiss, labelling her dad’s girlfriend a “piece of trash.”
Quoting actress Mary Elizabeth’s profile message, Clara commented: “Most beautiful and talented woman on earth??? Oh man y’all are delusional. The girl is a piece of trash 🙂 x.”
A fan hit back at Clara, writing: “Say it to her face not in social media. It took TWO to undo this marriage. If a man OR woman is happy w/ their marriage no outside interference can destroy that!”
Clara then replied: “Yup it took two!! Mary & my father :)”
Speaking to The Times after her outburst, Clara did acknowledge that her comments on Instagram were not ‘mature’ but did give her reasoning for making them.
She said: “It wasn’t the most mature way to go about things, but I was angry and upset.
“There had been a lot building up to it and a lot to deal with – not to make excuses or anything – but, yeah, it wasn’t my finest moment.”
The model said that at the time, she “kept being tagged in this photograph and I was seeing negative things about my mom.”

Clara continued: “I said how I felt and I didn’t want to apologise for it.
“It wasn’t the right way to go about things, but it’s a hard thing to wrap your head around when you feel you had this idea of what the family unit is and then to have that shift. It’s very weird.”
Clara also admitted that she wasn’t going to be making any special efforts to get to know her dad’s new girlfriend.
She said: “I’m good. I wish them all the best, but I’m staying out of that, for sure.”
He had allegedly done so voluntarily but felt he was paying over the odds compared to what he felt he should be contributing.
At the same time, Eve was claiming that she was receiving less than what she was entitled to, so it had proved to be a sticking point.
