  'Gutsy' Ewan McGregor thanks both wife and girlfriend during Golden Globes speech Ewan McGregor raised eyebrows at the 2018 Golden Globes when he thanked his estranged wife Eve Mavrakis and his girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead during his acceptance speech. The 46-year-old Scottish star won the award for best performance by an actor in a limited series or motion picture for television for his role in Fargo. Despite his turbulent personal life making headlines in recent months, he still decided to take a moment to acknowledge two of the most important women in his life. He started off with the 51-year-old production designer Mavrakis, who he married in 1995 and separated from in May 2017. "I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years," he said before adding: "and our four children, Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk." He then went on to pay tribute to his Fargo co-star Winstead. "I've always loved being an actor and I love hanging out with actors and I got amazing actors to work with on this. There wouldn't be any Emmit Stussy without David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbarg and Carrie Coon, and there would've been no Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead so thank you very much." The pair went public with their controversial romance in October 2017. The Trainspotting actor is 14 years her senior. Golden Globes viewers took to Twitter with some branding McGregor's speech as a slap in the face to his estranged wife.

Ewan's speech was much less controversial than when he picked up a Golden Globe for Fargo on Sunday and thanked both Mary and his estranged wife Eve, the mother of his four daughters who he was reported to have split from late last year amid rumours of a romance with his co-star.

He said: "I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years, and our four children Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk.

"And there wouldn't have been any Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead."
