What Ewan McGregor's wife had to say about that Golden Globes speech

Sunday, 14 Jan, 2018

McGregor played twins Ray and Emmit Stussy in the FX show, and Mary played Ray's girlfriend Nikki Swango. So, I want to thank you for all that, especially Gail Kennedy, who did all my prosthetic makeup to make me Ray, and she did an unbelievable job, and Chris Glimsdale, who did my hair or lack of hair for both those characters.

Accepting the Best Actor in a Limited Series accolade on Sunday night, he said: "I want to take a moment to say thank you to Eve".

Eve and Ewan then confirmed that they had split in November, after 22 years of marriage, much to everyone's surprise.

When asked why she didn't like the speech, the mother-of-four said: 'For the same reasons you are here asking me about it.

Ewan and Eve's marital breakdown was not apparent when pictures first surfaced of Mary and Ewan kissing in October.

He said: "Thank you to Warren, to FX, MGM brah - that's what we used to call you on set, MGM brah - and Noah, for putting together this fantastic team to make this, to give us these great scripts and wonderful storylines and great characters, and really for the great directors that you gave us to work with". I am not going to say any more'.

"Ewan and Eve were a very affectionate and loving couple, but it all changed over the summer", a source told the Daily Mail.

Mary and Ewan reportedly became close during their time on Fargo together, causing his marriage to hit the rocks when he returned to his family home.

Eve and Ewan tied the knot in 1995 and he has previously gushed about his wife in interviews.

Despite his new romance, the Trainspotting star opted to walk the red carpet at the bash solo, which social media have suggested was a mark of respect for his two-decade long relationship.

Was Ewan being genuine or not?
