Last month, Ewan McGregor caused a stir when he was spotted brazenly kissing his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead in a busy London diner, with the actor being married to wife Eve Mavrakis for 22 years.
Later it was reported that Eve has been left “furious” by Ewan’s fling with Mary Elizabeth, and now she is convinced that the two stars had an affair behind her back.
It was previously claimed that Ewan told Eve that he had feelings for his 32-year-old co-star back in May, however, he insisted that nothing had happened between them.
Speaking to The Sun, a source explained: “Eve is sure Ewan and Mary were together before he confessed his feelings for her. It is hard for her to believe him.
“This situation is extremely difficult for her and their four children.”
Eve had welcomed Mary Elizabeth into her and Ewan’s family home after she was cast alongside her husband in the US TV show.
Ewan and Mary Elizabeth started filming Fargo in Calgary, Canada, in January, with Ewan and Eve’s marriage said to have “abruptly” hit the rocks over the summer, with it reportedly “clear” that the pair had grown close when Ewan returned home from shooting.
An insider revealed last month: “Eve wanted to work through it but a month later it was clear Ewan had made his decision. Eve was his love and supported his career.
“They think he might be having a mid-life crisis and that is why he is pursuing his relationship with Mary at the expense of his family.”
Ewan and Eve have four daughters together, Clara, Esther, Anouk and Jamyan.
Shortly after news of the scandal broke, 22-year-old Clara posted a photo of her mum with Ewan cropped out to Twitter, writing: “How frickin gorgeous is my mama?? Strongest, smartest most loving woman I know. My rock.”
Yahoo Celeb UK have contacted Ewan’s reps for comment.
