Ewan McGregor’s daughter Clara called Mary Elizabeth Winstead a ‘piece of trash’

Last fall, Ewan McGregor was caught in public with his Fargo costar Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Ewan had been, at the time, married to Eve Mavrakis for 22 years. It seemed like such a dumb cliche: man abandons his wife for a younger woman. I thought Ewan was better than that. He was not. By January of this year, he filed for divorce and he and Mary Elizabeth were just together, officially now. There were rumors that she broke it off with him, but those rumors were false. Ewan and Mary Elizabeth are still happening. Throughout this months-long homewrecking saga, Ewan’s daughter Clara has been posting sh-t about her dad and Mary Elizabeth on social media. Clara is doing it again:

Ewan McGregor’s daughter Clara lashed out at his girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead in a social media attack on Thursday evening. From her verified Instagram account, the 22-year-old model took to the comments section of an image from a fan page for the Fargo star, who was first spotted with Ewan in October, to lash out at the page administrators for calling Mary beautiful.

A seemingly enraged Clara hit out in the comments section, as she penned: ‘Most beautiful and talented woman on earth? (laughing faces) Oh man y’all are delusional. The girl is a piece of trash (smiley face) x’.

Clara has not been shy of airing her feelings on her parents’ split after Ewan and Mary first went public with their budding romance in Los Angeles in November as he moves on from his wife of 22 years Eve Mavrakis. Alongside Clara, Ewan and his estranged wife have three other children together – Jamyan, Esther and Anouk. The eldest of their kids was seemingly enraged when she saw the gushing post by a fan – leading to her ‘piece of trash comment’.

[From The Daily Mail]

You can go to the DM to see the screencap of the comment. It wasn’t faked – Clara is really angry about how Ewan has treated Eve, and Clara probably feels like she’s her mom’s defender. The only thing I would say to Clara is this: yes, it’s really, really sh-tty that your dad is such a dumb cliche, but also, your dad made the choice. Mary Elizabeth isn’t some manipulative villainess or “piece of trash” who stole your dad. HE made the choice to ruin his marriage.

    Methinks daddy is the one who is trash

  2. Elena says:

    It’s unfortunate and it’s not classy but who can blame her? She’s truly hurting.

  3. Red says:

    They can both be trash, it doesn’t have to be one or the other. Of course Ewan needs to take full responsibility as he is the one who was married with children. However, Mary Elizabeth knew he was married, and still had that affair. I would be fuming too if that was my dad, and I would definitely be cursing both parties.

  4. MCV says:

    I’ve in her position so I understand hating the woman but in the end you learn that is your own dad the one who ain’t sh*t. I remember feeling so disappointed it felt like I really didn’t knew my dad, like the person living with me and my mom was an impostor.

  5. Birdix says:

    Well she’s got their attention now, that’s for sure…

  6. Stormyshay says:

    It is easier to blame the other person than to accept the person you love is capable of terrible actions. Infidelity sucks. Sadly, he has probably wrecked the relationship he had with his daughter.

    • Darla says:

      Then she’s immature. My parents both had affairs, I knew about them, and it did not wreck my relationship with either of them.

      • Shijel says:

        Good on you. Don’t set your own experience and ability to deal and process as some ideal that all hurt and betrayed children whose father has kept humiliating them and their mother over decades up as aspirational.

        My parents cheated on one another too, I caught my dad getting handsy with the person who’d become his second wife years later when he was still married to my mum so many times. I was six. Parents wouldn’t separate until four years later.

        I still have a good relationship with both, as well as the new wife, but it’s left a permanent mark on how I see romantic relationships, how I see people, and it also taught me that I am not allowed to vent my feelings and disappointment, anger, because it’s ‘immature’.

        The only person whose reaction you should concern yourself with, Darla, is your own, and your condescension paints a good picture of your own character.

      • Anatha. A says:

        It’s her dad. She has every right to be as immature as she wants. She can’t have an objective view in him or her. I agree that he is trash, but we are talking about a child. No matter how old she is, she’ll always be his child.

      • Darla says:

        22 is a child? That must be white years.

        Shijel, six is not the same as 22. A six year old is a child.

      • S says:

        To be clear, you’re saying the daughter, calling out her father’s mistress, who engaged in a highly public affair, which ended her parents’ marriage, is the “immature” one here? Not 47-year-old Ewan McGregor who very publicly took up with a co-star while very much married? Who gushed about his new love in the press, while trashing his wife of 20+ years and mother of his children? Not the also-then-married 33-year-old Mary Elizabeth Winstead who was making out with someone else’s husband in public? Who, by all accounts, knew the man’s wife and children, who thought Mary Elizabeth was their friend? It’s the daughter who is immature, is it?

        Look, is her father an ass, too? OBVIOUSLY. But I give kids ALL the leeway, even if they are of age, when they’re dealing with parents that act this poorly. She said Mary Elizabeth was a, quote, “piece of trash”? Boo-freaking-who. A young woman who has spent the past year living in a world where her family was being torn apart, with the media covering every moment of it. Heck, I admire this young woman’s restraint.

      • Happy21 says:

        Mine as well. Affairs, flings, whatever. I didn’t let that aspect change my relationship or my feelings for them because I did not know what was going on in their relationship at that time, I wasn’t privy to it, I’m their kid, not their confidante. In the end, they were together until my mom passed away and while their relationship wasn’t a fairy tale, they loved each other in their own way.

      • Anatha. A says:

        @Darla Of course she is an adult.
        But she is a CHILD in relation to him and always will be, because it is her own FATHER. If she talked like that about any other women it would be immature. In that case though she has every right to be upset and vent. The guy she adored, loved and looked up to turned out to be utter trash and MEW was heavily involved in that. So yeah. She can act out all she wants in my opinion. Nothing can compare to the pain she must feel and see when she looks at her family.

      • EmBee says:

        Not sure why so many people are caping for this grown girl. This behavior is the very definition of immature, hurt or not. I’m sure the same people didn’t defend Kelly Osbourne giving out the number of her dad’s mistress.

      • Barcelona says:

        @ Darla

        Good for you, not everybody responds the same way.
        You realize that right?
        Sounds like a Trump supporter that doesn’t much care about others, except, “me, me and more me…

      • KB says:

        @Darla Wouldn’t it be a lot easier if both of your parents had affairs? It means neither was committed to fidelity. If her mom was all in, 100% committed and faithful for 20+ years and her dad stepped out on her, I see why that would upset her. She is left to pick up the pieces, and she probably feels quite defensive of her mom. She probably wouldn’t feel that way if her mom had stepped out also.

      • WendyNerd says:

        @ember There is a big difference between doxxing/endangering someone and calling someone a piece of trash. One is dangerous. The other is harmless insult. Take note.

      • Stumpycorgi says:

        Shijel, thank you. I needed to read that. I caught my dad cheating when I was 15. He humiliated my mom by pretending to give a shit in therapy and when he needed surgery, and then abandoned us to live on another fucking continent. My mom was planning to move with him once I started college. Among many other betrayals, I went to visit him there and it turned out he had a live in girlfriend and when I asked her to leave so my dad and I could talk, she refused and he left me alone, left with her, and I had to find a youth hostel on my own. And still to this day he tells me I’ve always been too sensitive and that it’s a great failing of mine.

      • Nikki says:

        I disagree with you 100%. If you choose to have an affair, you are being dishonest to your vows, dishonest to your partner, and you are selfishly saying you want to throw away your family harmony to pursue the new fling. It’s DEFINITELY a betrayal, and people who have been betrayed have every right to feel angry and hurt. If she comes to the place where she feels her anger is hurting herself more than them, and chooses to forgive, that’s another story. But it’s not a mark of “immaturity” to be angry when your dad cheats on your mom.

      • Meggles says:

        Don’t victim blame. It’s not remotely “immature” to not want to have a relationship with a lying, cheating parent. Some parents can handle affairs discreetly and maturely so the child is less affected but cheating is still a toxic, harmful act. It’s a shame so many kids end up being forced into being their parents’ emotional caretakers. A lot of kids are told how “mature” they are as part of emotional abuse designed to force them to repress their feelings and brainwash them into thinking they are ‘okay’ with toxic situations. I’m sorry but it is not normal for a parent-child relationship to be completely unaffected by infidelity. Maybe it’s something you can work on and get over together, but to have no affect at all? That indicates serious repression and toxicity and an unhealthy parent-child dynamic.

      • jan90067 says:

        Embee, there’s a difference in *only* calling someone a name and calling someone a name AND giving out a personal phone number on social media. I’m surprised you can’t see the difference.

    • CeeCee says:

      On the Instagram page Clara says it was both Mary and her dad who were at fault

  7. Darla says:

    She’s 22? I think this is out of bounds. Marriages end. People fall in love with other people while they’re still married. I don’t think people were really meant to be together forever. If he had babies or toddlers at home, I’d feel differently. That is a very awful thing to do, because it takes away their sense of security. But at 22? My parents were divorced when I was 18, and I wasn’t hurt by it. I don’t know, that’s just my view.

    • crogirl says:

      It does seem a bit much but we don’t know the whole story. How old are the other children? I think the other daughter, Esther, also took it pretty hard, she wrote a song or something.

      • Darla says:

        Maybe I am just in a bad mood. There is so much stuff going on and children suffering everywhere. None of us had a perfect childhood. None of our parents were perfect people. Maybe their childhood was perfect and now as young adults they got an unwelcome surprise. Every life involves pain. I just don’t have the empathy here, I’ve been through far worse. And I’ve been through nothing compared to the rest of the world. To me this is entitled, bratty behavior. Again, I’m probably in a bad mood. Trump has put me in a permanent bad mood. I don’t have time or interest in foolishness.

      • Léna says:

        Because some suffer more than other doesn’t mean they don’t have the right to be angry or mad, or have feelings at all.

      • Lena, I don’t see where Darla is saying she can’t be angry or feel resentment. I think it’s in her choice to make her private feelings public in this way that’s the sticking point. JMO

    • Georgia says:

      It happens, sure, but not without consequences. Her calling out this woman doesn’t absolve her father – just points out that the other adult involved made a life decision that left her open to this type of crtiticism.

    • Shijel says:

      That 22-year-old is the oldest. The other kids are younger, some are teens, and god knows we here at Celebitchy have witnessed Ewan cheating left and right on his wife with a selection of women. These kids have read about their father’s infidelities and humiliation of his own family for years.

      Editing to point out that MEW was a family friend. Or so they thought. That’s messed, to bring your cheating partner to your home, to your family.

    • mtam says:

      @Darla
      I understand your sentiment, but I don’t think ppl are capable of drawing an age cap on how to feel about their parent’s relationship. The relationship they (eve and ewan) built was built with her in it too. I know when my dad betrayed my mom, we felt he betrayed us (his children) too. She could also be feeling protective of her mother and younger siblings. So it’s definitely her business if her father and his mistress are acting/acted disrespectfully. No matter what age she is.

      Also apparently MEW was a family friend, who frequented their married family home while having an affair with her father. That’s a complete betrayal of everyone involved.

      Also @Léna —totally agree. She’s obvs allowed to have her feelings about it whether or not someone thinks she’s had a charmed life up until then, like wtf she’s still human.

    • Lisbon says:

      @Darla :

      I think it’s more than bad mood, sounds very cold and heartless.
      People deal with pain differently and also process betrayal in a different way.
      I’m sure the break up of their family, because of their father’s affair with the piece of trash woman that didn’t seem to have issues sleeping with a married guy with children is no foolishness to them.
      It’s personal and it was played out by her father and his mistress in public, which is very shameful.
      Trump lacks compassion, kindness and empathy, I hope many people still have those qualities…

    • Nivi says:

      Darla, Seems like you are the only mature one in this whole comments thread. i don’t understand why people are defending this adult woman for her trollish behaviour. Her parents didn’t even teach her to not call other people names (publicly). MEW doesn’t owe her anything , for All the people in the back Once Again : MEW is NOT HER PARENT ,She DOESN’T have ANY RIGHT TO CALL HER NAMES.

      • LoveBug says:

        @ Nivi
        I think we should give MEW a medal with Trumps’s picture on it for knowingly sleeping with a married guy with children and thank her for her help in breaking up a family.
        I also think that the 22 year old daughter whose well known 48 year old father was having an affair with MEW and didn’t bother to be even discreet about it should be the more mature person than her middle aged father and his 35 year old mistress.
        Because the 22 year old should know better with all of that life experience behind her, no?
        MEW should be absolved of all of her responsibility for her actions, because she just fell on this married guy’s penis, it’s not her fault and the daughter who has been hurt by her father and his mistress should just be quiet and behave.
        MEW didn’t do anything wrong, she is a victim of Ewan’s and MEW is being trashed on social media by his horrendous daughter that wasn’t taught by her parents not to call people names (PUBLICLY), because she was hurt.

    • says:

      I’m 22 as well and if I found out my dad was cheating on my mother with a family friend I’d hate them both too. Of course it would be primarily his fault, but it takes a certain type of person to knowingly have an affair with someone in a relationship, especially if they’re familiar with their family. She’s not entitled for having feelings, and while calling her a piece of trash publicly is not the best thing to do, she has a right to be angry. I cannot even imagine how humiliated and deceived they must have felt. Yeah every life has pain and some people have it way worse but still we all have the right to deal with it in our own way. Your comment is honestly so heartless.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I think the problem at its root is that he exposed his wife and children to her on a personal level. Clara is the oldest and the youngest is 7 years old. My oldest sister and brother are very parental and protective of the rest of us and even at my age they still have an extra level of respect because of it. They are worthy of their status so I don’t resent it. Maybe that is her place in her family.
      Ewan has been publicly cheating for a long time so I suspect Clara is very protective of her family and probably saw and took on more than she should have at a young age. It may have been years of frustration and anger that got the best of her.

      EM and MEW have been shameless and crude with their flagrant public displays. Really no discretion at all. I sincerely hope their careers crash and burn for being so vulgar and heartless towards his children. MEW should have never gone to their house and been in their lives at all. THAT is on her. SHE made the decision to expose them to her. Unless he kidnapped her at gunpoint and forced her to dinner she has to own that. If it were me, and I was one of his children, I would hate her guts. I would hate her for humiliating my mother in her own home. I would hate her for smiling in my face while she was sleeping with my father. That is some low down behavior and I think she is a crap garbage woman for doing it.

      However, I would never do what Clara did. I prize privacy and think family business should be dealt with behind closed doors but Ewan and MEW are so brazen they practically begged for this.
      She may regret it one day though.

      • Darla says:

        This is how I am. I keep family laundry in the family. If my young niece did what the daughter here did, I would defend her to the death in public, but in private I would sit her down and tell her she needs to be classy in public. I like Jolie’s way of handling stuff, you know no matter what anyone says about her, she doesn’t respond. I always feel like she is looking down her nose and giving the impression of “I don’t respond to d list celebrities, nor do i even know who they are”. I admire that, it’s the way I have always handled things myself. Now, what I might say to someone in private is different.

        Also, I did not know there is a 7yo involved, and I do consider that a problem.

      • magnoliarose says:

        It was the 7 year old that got me too. Ewan is defective.

  8. Zapp Brannigan says:

    It must really hurt Ewan’s wife and children that MEW was in their family home for dinner all while he was fooling around with her. How do you get past that level of disrespect and brazenness.

    • JeanGrey says:

      Is that so? Wow. So then I can more fully understand the daughter’s vitriol. I’d feel the same too. Usually I put it all on the man who made the commitment. I found out I was the “other woman” with one guy I was dating a few months into the relationship. He exhibited absolutely NO signs of being married. I.e. he never spoke of any wife. never wore a ring, was out day and night even to the crack of dawn and apparently fooled even my friends, so I try not to be too judgy on unsuspecting women who may find themselves in a similar situation. But when the woman is fully aware that a man is married to the point of even being a guest in their home, being fed/hosted by the unsuspecting wife or even worse, when it’s a family member like a sister or cousin, I find the betrayal even harsher and think those women are grimy. While the husband still hold the brunt of the responsibility , those women are nothing short of shameful.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Yeah, that’s the detail that made me go – holy shit, really? I had thought the situation was more that a marriage fell apart and they moved on. When I learned all of the details, his thanking his ex-wife just became a repulsive and smug gesture rather than a touching one.

      I knew somebody who did that, though. He took his wife to see his “coworker” who just had a baby. On the way home, it hit the wife that what had really happened is that she had just visited her husband’s mistress and new child. She had been invited to that woman’s baby shower, even. To this day, I don’t know how they made it home without her murdering him for that humiliation. Some people really are just the garbage dumps of humanity.

      • JeanGrey says:

        @ Veronica S. Are you serious? OMG. I don’t think I would have survived that level of betrayal and deceit. I’d get all “crime of passion” on BOTH of them, and then probably need to be institutionalized. My story would have ended up as an episode on “Snapped”. My heart hurts for your friend. That sounds traumatizing.

      • magnoliarose says:

        That is just…I have no words. Why so cruel? That is just nasty to do to someone.

      • Veronica S. says:

        I think he was just a narcissistic sociopath, honestly, based on her descriptions of him. He was just very good at playing the charming husband until life actually got challenging and then decided to start an affair with a coworker. She actually forgave him initially, since they did have four children together, but her “light bulb moment” came when he traveled with her to a help group to deal with her eating disorder, and he spent the entire time talking about how hard her disease was on HIM. She basically said that was the moment she realized he didn’t care for anything but himself and decided to file for divorce.

        As you would expect, he was extremely petty and vicious when faced with the consequences of his actions. The fact that his children that were of age basically told the courts they wanted nothing to do with him, and the younger children refuse to interact with him outside of custody visits should tell you everything about what kind of person

      • magnoliarose says:

        It is good she was able to “see” him finally but I do feel for her for having to deal with him at all. It can’t be easy to know he is the father of her children and they deal with his behavior and insensitivity too.
        At an ED meeting? He is just awful.

  9. Iknow says:

    Both Ewan and Mary Elizabeth are trash!

  10. Toot says:

    I remember the sister,Esther, sang that song on IG after the pictures first came out of Ewan cheating around her birthday, I believe.

    The kids probably don’t think too highly of Ewan either.

  11. Sash says:

    I don’t blame her. Those poor kids.

  12. Christina S. says:

    A woman who knowingly goes after a married man is trash. Don’t get me wrong he’s trash too. People like that deserve one another

  13. Lautiec says:

    Evansher ex put her on blast too for having Ewan over to their house while they had been already hooking up. Both Ewan and mew are trash and we can only hope that MEw breaks his heart in a spectacular manner so everyone can have a mid life crisis laugh at his expense soon.

  14. Patty says:

    I’m going to say this was unneccesary. She probably doesn’t know everything that was going on in her parents relationship. She’s angry that her parents split? Here’s an idea, go to therapy. Sit down and talk to your parents. Don’t call someone trash on social media.

    Sorry I just know too many people who were angry as teens and young adults at one parent because they actually didn’t fully understand what was going on or what happened I’m the relationship between their parents.

    • mtam says:

      @Patty
      …umm when your dad’s mistress participates in dinners with his wife and kids in their family home, and they considered her a friend… I think you know. She’s 22, I think she was able to fully see what a betrayal that was. Ewan and MEW are both trash.

    • Mia4s says:

      Eh, it’s harsh and yes she does not know everything in her parents’ relationship…but whatever that relationship was Mary Elizabeth presented herself as a family friend and would come to dinner. I don’t care what point Ewan and his wife were at. That’s deceptive and that’s is a trash thing to do entirely. So yes, Mary Elizabeth is trash. And yes, so is Ewan.

    • Ashby says:

      @Patty

      The other woman is a piece of trash and so is her dad.
      Ewan’s daughter, all of his family and his wife have every right to call her whatever name they choose, on social media or anywhere else.
      And I’m very sure that his children know a lot more about what happened than you and I ever will.
      Therapy, how do you know she is not in therapy???
      Maybe less judgment, more compassion and kindness would be in order of someone that was clearly very much impacted by her father’s and his
      mistresses behavior being flaunted in front of the world.

    • Sash says:

      She does not owe her father’s mistress any sort of courtesy.

    • EmBee says:

      Calling her trash on social media IS very immature. Especially for a 22 year old. MEW is trash and I feel her pain, but I think putting it on insta like that knowing they are both public figures is pretty childish. But whatever, everyone on here seems to be defending her.

      • Bailie says:

        @EmBee

        Why should we not defend Ewan’s daugther?
        I would be shocked and very hurt, if my famous father who is almost 50 years old and married to my mom is flaunting his mistress knowing that pictures will be taken at some point.
        Who is more immature the nearly 50 year old father or the 22 year old daughter?
        Is it surprising that his daughter is upset and lashing out?
        Don’t disrespect your family, if you no longer want to be married, there is divorce, many people have them and go on with their lives without leaving a ruble behind.

      • jan90067 says:

        If EM and MEW can flaunt their relationship on social media, his daughter can call them out on it.

    • Sarah says:

      Him leaving is not a surprise its been known for years him and his wife had a open realthship did she honestly think he was one day gonna leave if you give your husband permission to screw around dont be surprised when he does

    • Meggles says:

      MEW can parade her infidelity all over red carpets and shove it in the face of the worldwide press (knowing the injured innocent parties will see it), but one of those victimised can’t even put one little comment on social media where hardly anyone will see it? (Yes it’s been picked up by a couple of gossip blogs but that’s hardly anything compared to the mainstream media and pap coverage of Ewan and MEW on red carpets).

    • Otaku Fairy... says:

      “Ewan’s daughter, all of his family and his wife have every right to call her whatever name they choose, on social media or anywhere else.” Yeah no. When celebrities and public figures decide to literally call people ‘whatever name they choose’ on social media, they encourage others to join in on harassment or any misogyny or homophobia involved (since participation in affairs isn’t limited to one gender or sexual orientation). So it’s not a bad thing if a small minority of people are being critical of how Clara handled this- it may be a needed teachable moment for her, even though she showed some restraint. She’s in her 20′s. I’ve been cheated on (no marriage or kids involved though, so obviously not as bad as this situation) and had affairs happen in my family and friend circles, but expressed everything in arguments and texts that the whole world wasn’t in on. Celebrities know what they’re doing when they use their public platforms to go after other public figures on the internet.

  15. Lorrie says:

    Yes, he IS trash, but she is also the lowest kind of woman. You DON’T mess with a married man, or one who is in a relationship. He can come after you all he wants, a decent woman stays away. If he’s unhappy he can get a divorce and then give you a call.

  16. Darla says:

    I keep thinking of Livia Soprano and her classic “oh poor you”.

  17. bitchyarchitect says:

    Its actually a scientific fact that the brain is not fully formed until age 25. ( Google it) Specifically the decision-making and risk taking part of the brain. This is part of the reason young people often make really poor decisions. So even though most people consider college the benchmark for adult-hood, for me its 26. I certainly remember what a jack*ss I was throughout most of my 20′s.

  18. NYCTYPE says:

    Of course the ” OTHER WOMAN ” is trash.
    What a shock that she is being called out.
    How could she not be trash, messing around with a married guy is never right?
    I think they are both piece of trash.
    Marriages end, people fall out of love, sure it happens, it’s not a crime, but how hard is it to end one relationship before moving onto a new one??????????????????
    Being decent to one another, having compassion and empathy and not causing hurt doesn’t require a degree from a university.
    I certainly make sure who I associate myself, especially who do I choose to sleep with.
    Really not a rocket science, is it?

    There both pieces of sh*t. However, when someone goes after a married man and/or woman willingly knowing they are married, well, in my opinion, they are the lowest piece of scum on earth. There is a special place in hell for people like that!!! Shame on them.

    He’s not going to give up MEW for you, dear. Enroll in therapy and keep your thoughts about this topic off of the internet.

    • Sash says:

      Seriously? It’s her family, her life. The gall of complete strangers telling a daughter how to behave towards the woman and behavior which ruined her family. Come on, now.

    • Holly hobby says:

      Wow that’s cold. Have a little compassion for the break up of a family at this point I doubt Eve would want him back anyway. The issue isn’t the break up at this point. The issue was how it happened (betrayal by family friend). So no I doubt they’d be a happy family. Plus I don’t see this relationship lasting to the end either

    • Bailie says:

      @Ashley

      I couldn’t disagree more, she has every right to criticize her father’s lover on the internet or off the internet.
      Why should she keep her thought to herself, she is not the one cheating and she is not the one hooking up with a married man.
      There is nothing to be ashamed of for her, the only two people who should feel shame is her father and the piece of trash that was sleeping with the married dude with children.
      She is 22 years old and her father is nearly 50 years old, who should know better?

    • minx says:

      Well, she wouldn’t have to put her thoughts on the internet if her father hadn’t broken up the family on the internet.

    • BegoneOrangeCheeto says:

      And how about you not lecture a hurting young woman who has seen her mother being treated like garbage by her father?

  22. Gigi LaMoore says:

    Ewan is the trashier party as he actually betrayed his family. That part is on him. I don’t mess around with married men. Not because they are married but because I respect myself.

    • realitycheck says:

      Actually people who came after and engage in relationships/affairs with married people/taken people (with children or not) don’t respect other AND don’t respect themselves.
      And they are the one who humiliate themselves with this type of trash behaviour..the person cheated doesn’t have to suffer from the label ‘humiliation’ only the cheaters do.

      • Gigi LaMoore says:

        You lost me at the last 2 sentences. Being with married people is wrong. However, it is not the other woman/man’s responsibility to keep a marriage together. It is the person who made the vows. Unless the woman in question is my mom, sister, cousin or friend, my scorn would be reserved for my husband only. There is no other way for me to see it. MEW is trash, Ewan is just trashier.

      • BorderMollie says:

        It’s not the popular opinion, Gigi, but I agree. People who take on married lovers may be dishonourable and selfish, but so are lots of people in this world. It’s the job of the married/partnered party to say no to any advances.

      • realitycheck says:

        I disagree with you Gigi LaMoore. The person taken who cheat is trash but the person who engage in the cheating with this person is AS MUCH trash, particularly when the person knows the person is taken and knows and is friend with the other people concerned like the official partner and the children !!

  23. Veronica S, says:

    *shrugs* What did they think would happen? They publicly humiliated Eve and tore the family apart. Of course the kids are angry. I don’t think what she’s doing is productive, but I get it. She’s young and heartbroken. The problem with the Internet is that all of your frustrated immaturity is out there for the world to see permanently, which sucks for everybody involved.

  24. P says:

    I used to like Ewan, but yeah, just trash.

  25. Hannah Maguire says:

    She may well be a shit person. We don’t know. Sounds like Clara does.

    My father in laws new wife is an absolute bitch. We don’t say that because she is the other woman – takes two to tango. We say it because it’s true. She puts people down, butts in where she shouldn’t and just generally causes trouble wherever she goes.

    • Deanne says:

      This exactly. My siblings and I hate my Father’s wife. The affair was one thing, her bitch behaviour is another. She disrespected my Mother and interfered with co-parenting constantly. I love my Father, but have very little respect for him at this point. MEW is in for it with the daughters and is getting exactly what she deserves. Pretending to be a friend to Evan’s wife and daughters, while carrying on an affair is garbage behaviour. Both she and Evan are pieces of trash. His daughter certainly owes her no respect or courtesy in this situation.

  26. WendyNerd says:

    Never care about who a person schtupps. Care about who they hurt.

  27. D says:

    Fair is fair if you engage in an affair with a committed man, the kiddos get to call you trash it might not be her FAULT but it was still her CHOICE to act like trash and she did for Ewan they deserve each other

  28. julie says:

    The abuse Mary Elizabeth has taken (and will continue to take) is only going to drive Ewan even closer to her and want to protect her more. So, this little stunt won’t be productive at all.

  29. Shijel says:

    I’m really just surprised how many people here act like Ewan McGregor’s -children- owe MEW any sort of grace, silence and discretion, and how they should take the high road when ‘family friend’ MEW (and Ewan! Scumbag) afforded Ewan’s children none whatsoever.

    • S says:

      Exactly! No one is, or should be, advocating she commit violence or anything else…But, posting a (not even that) mean comment on Instagram seems well within the bounds of acceptable anger from a daughter in this scenario.

    • I didn’t realize that MEW had been a family friend at one point, during their affair I guess? They both sound awful. I doubt if at 22 I’d be nice about it either. I just wouldn’t do it publicly.

      But, they’re both public figures who made the decision to betray their families. I guess MEW was married as well when she met Ewan. So, maybe his daughter feels like hitting them where it hurts, their reputations.

      Although, in my opinion Ewan doesn’t seem to care much about his reputation, as he publicly works with and supports Roman Polanski.

    • Aren says:

      Yes. It’s like when people want victims of abuse to move on and not ruin the abuser’s life with all that complaining.

    • Stumpycorgi says:

      @Shijel Me too. You are my hero for the day. I’m assuming that none of those people have any experience with this situation. No, not both your parents separately having affairs and amicably separating. Not one parent having an affair that ended a marriage that worked out best for the other parent anyway. We are talking about someone infiltrating a family, gaining their trust, and betraying that entire family with their parent/husband. Witnessing that as a child is a pain you can’t understand unless you’ve been there. I was there. I watched my mom trust my dad as he constantly flew off to Sweden to work with this woman. She was also married with kids, it was so friendly and nice! Bullshit. I watched my mom try to swallow her pain to try to heal the family through therapy. I saw her deceived again and again. And after everything, there’s the horrible paradox: I can’t help loving my dad, logic won’t prevail. But whom can you hate more in this world than someone who hurts your mom?

      • Stumpycorgi says:

        And to clarify, my dad is trash and so is his trick. She is now an extremely powerful figure in Swedish politics and he is a “famous” academic. Lately I wonder how her husband and kids fared. I know that for 3/4 of us kids, life was never the same, to say it nicely. I don’t have the heart to write about my mom. My dad and this woman are shining stars in their respective fields, and get tons of public praise. I often have people come up to me and tell me how much they love my dad, how he changed their lives, and how wonderful it must be to have him as a father. I suppose it’s the same for that piece of trash’s children and ex husband too. And I think using the phrase “piece of trash” is restrained. One thing is for sure, I am never getting married or having kids. When your eyes are opened to this kind of thing, you can’t close them again.

      • Ladiabla says:

        Totally agree. I’m actually on board with Clara doing this. Maybe it’s because I was always my Mom’s advocate, but if anyone was to hurt my Mom, the gloves would be coming off. Trash Dad included. I’m sure she’s said some things to Ewan directly, and I’m sorry but if you knowingly choose to break up a family, your ass better be prepared for what’s in store for you. And taking the “high road” and swallowing all that pain isn’t healthy either. I’m sure Clara is a comfort to her Mom at this time. And we want men to be held accountable for their actions right? Well she certainly isn’t making things comfortable for him and his side piece right now, and I am here for it.

    • Rose says:

      I do’nt think the children owe her anything, but I think taht the behavior of Clara and Esther proves that Eve is not doing her job as their mother.

      They both want careers in entertainment. Music and/or modeling and/or acting. This kind of behavior where you go on and air your family’s dirty laundry is going to be brought up again for years if any of them ever actually amount to anything besides posing badly in fake playboy shoots and touring Europe on Daddy’s dime every other month.

      Eve can’t stop Clara, I suppose, but if your 15 year old is spewig shit on the internet, make her get therapy. Protect her future reputation in the field she wants to enter. And have a talk to your 22 year old about the fact that her father was a cheating piece of shit for 22 years, so she needs to redirect that blame.

  30. Other Renee says:

    Do we know that she is not also blaming her cheating father as well? In this post, she is responding to someone else’s post that refers only to how wonderful MEW is.

    22 is not too old to be angry. I’m much older than that, but I’d still feel anger towards both parties for such rotten behavior. Cheating is cheating.

    • Rose says:

      She has multiple times gushed about how great her dad is and how proud she is of him.

      She went out of her way to find a MEW fan page and call her a piece of trash, so yeah. Her blmae is lopsided.

      But to be honest, the girl has no life beyond partying, so she was probably not even sober.

      • Otaku Fairy... says:

        That’s a concern too. If she literally called them both pieces of trash on social media, that’s one thing. But if the woman is the only one she’s publicly calling a ‘piece of trash’ for the consensual sex they both had, while the man still gets to be a flawed but great human being who did one bad thing but is still worthy of pride and praise, that’s misogyny.

      • realitycheck says:

        Wtf ..it has nothing to do with misogyny..she just doesn’t give a damn about the cheating other party whereas she still loves HER dad, although he is a cheating pos too.. Maybe not ‘fair’ but totally understandable..Ewan is still her dad whereas the ‘other woman’ is just someone who help destroyed her family..

  31. LoveBug says:

    I’m often very much amazed how many women, some even feminist defend the other woman,
    like the other woman somehow has no responsibility whatsoever about who she sleeps with or hooks up with.
    I truly have no understanding of this.
    Of course the person that has given their wows to their spouse has a major responsibility, but how in the world so many women excuse the mistress is beyond me.
    I certainly make sure that I know with whom I engage with in an intimate relationship.
    It’s a responsibility that I have to myself and to a fellow human being that I have no right to hurt.
    I live by trying to treat people the way I want to be treated.
    Is it so hard for some to have respect?
    I understand that people fall out of love or fall in love with someone else than their spouse, it’s unfortunate, but it happens, but why not cleanly end one relationship before jumping to another one?
    Please minimize the hurt, life is hard enough to create more problems for ourselves and others.

    • Div says:

      I don’t think people necessarily defend the other women so much as express a sense of fatigue with how women are often over demonized for having an affair while men are barely criticized. Women are defined by their mistakes in society, men are treated like it’s a “minor” error even when they commit worse errors and legal crimes like sexual harassment or abuse. It’s not an either or situation, as you can feel both people who have an affair act in an extremely trashy and selfish way and also feel that the media coverage when it comes to the “other woman” is all a bit reductive. Long story short, you can think the other women did a horrible, selfish thing and also just be tired of the slanted, over the top, sexist view by some people and the media.

      *And if someone claims that men are treated in the press as having committed an equal wrong, a good example would be Tom Hanks (who admitted in an interview to having an affair and yet constantly used to get to the top of the “most trustworthy lists” that Star Magazine used to run) and Angelina Jolie (topping Star Magazine’s old most hated/untrustworthy list over men who do much worse like Chris Brown or Mel Gibson). Another one would be Josh Brolin skating for years and only one or two interviewers bringing up the domestic abuse situation with Diane Lane, but a lot of sly references and asides about Sienna’s affair with that Getty dude something like ten years later when she was in some magazines last year since she had a few films coming out.

    • magnoliarose says:

      I read the comments differently. I think it is understood Ewan is a dirtbag cheating worthless man and that his actions are more egregious in this situation. But MEW is a garbage person too. She does not skate by especially in light of the fact that she made friends with the family.
      I just don’t engage in the other woman/jezebel scenario like she lured him away or some nonsense.
      Knowingly messing around with a married person is bad judgment and the person who does it deserves derision and scorn. They aren’t innocent and they are complicit. Some of the blame is theirs. The argument that the cheater would have done it anyway is a weak attempt to absolve the accomplice of any guilt and to justify plain old shitty behavior.

    • BorderMollie says:

      It’s not about gender for me, simply that it’s not up to outsiders to uphold the morality of someone else’s vows or relationship. If you’re married, say no to advances and temptations outside your relationship or leave, end of story.

    • Otaku Fairy... says:

      Exactly, Div. It’s not about giving women a pass to cheat on or with. It’s about taking a critical look at gender and public responses to cheating/adultery. It’s also interesting to try to figure out which sex seems more emotional about celebrity cheating, (especially celebrity cheating) why that is, and how those emotions are expressed. The answer isn’t that clear-cut though, because even though men don’t usually become as emotionally invested in trashing male celebrity cheaters/cheatees unless it’s politically motivated, men do join women in becoming emotionally invested in calling out the woman in the equation.
      Also, a person of any gender or sexual orientation can be cheated on. It’s not ‘worse’ or more of a feminist/human rights issue just because the wronged party happens to be a woman. Both are equally crappy.

    • realitycheck says:

      Exactly and the so called ‘feminist’ who excuse them are not real feminist, thank you very much.

  32. Div says:

    While both Ewan and Mary acted trashy and terrible, it is really not healthy or mature for his daughter to go searching for fan accounts online about Mary and posting comments about how she thinks Mary is a piece of trash. And yeah, it indicates that she blames Mary more as she doesn’t appear to be seeking out Ewan fan accounts to do the same. I get that she’s angry and lashing out, but she needs to see someone on how to handle the situation or it is going to ruin her relationship with her Dad.

    • Deanne says:

      Her Father doesn’t seem overly concerned about his own behaviour ruining his relationship with his children and he should be. Why’s the burden on her to go to therapy and play nice with the mistress to keep him happy? He’s the one who cheated and broke up the family with this woman. He’s the one who should be working to earn his way back into her good graces. Not the other way around.

      • Div says:

        I never said she should be earning her way into his good graces. I said both he and Mary were selfish.

        He should be in therapy and begging for his family’s forgiveness. However, refraining from seeking out instagram fan accounts for Mary and leaving messages isn’t “playing nice with the mistress.” It’s being an adult. Trashing Mary to her friends is normal or even writing a post about Mary on her own instagram right after the affair is normal, seeking out random twitter pages devoted to Mary nearly a year after the affair is not normal. Being that angry isn’t healthy, and I really struggle to see how others think that is a normal reaction.

      • magnoliarose says:

        @Div
        I think she just snapped. I think MEW betrayed this family by becoming known and intimate with the children and his wife. It is more than just he cheated with someone random they don’t know. They know her so it adds an extra layer of pain. She is connected to MEW because she knows her and perhaps liked her too. She may feel stupid and duped by her.
        It wasn’t the wisest or best way to lash out but I can understand the urge.

  33. ladytron2000 says:

    As the saying goes; you lie in the gutter long enough, you bound to get fleas.

    Too bad, I expected better from Ewan.

  34. NYC says:

    @ Div

    How do you know that she didn’t give a piece of her mind to her dad, most likely in person?
    That’s what many would do.
    I think that the responsibility for having a healthy relationship lies more with the father than the daughter.
    He is the one that is the older one, should be wiser, has more life experience and he is the one that f*cked up in front of the world.
    Why is the burden put on a 22 year old woman and not her almost 50 year old father?

    • Div says:

      I really don’t understand why you think I’m putting the burden on her. I’m saying that trashing the other woman to your friends or even writing an instagram post right after it is revealed is normal, that seeking out Mary’s fan acccounts nearly a year later is not normal or healthy. He’s the one who needs to make amends to his family and be beg for forgiveness, but that kind of anger isn’t going to help his daughter either and will prevent her from even being civil to her dad most likely even if he does truly repent unless she sees someone to deal with how to channel that anger in a more healthy manner.

  35. JEANETTE says:

    I always get sort of pissy when I hear this argument as a child of divorce.. My thought is this, obviously she is mad at Dad, if not, she wouldnt have known about the affair. Her finding out, and working through that anger at him has led her to hate the other woman as well. THAT IS OK. Obviously she knew he had children, and she dove in knowing there would be consequences. That does not take the fault off of him, its just he isn’t part this conversation. Just because she doesn’t mention she is pissed at him as well does not make her wrong. Surely she is, and surely it has affected her deeply.

  36. laura-j says:

    I mean she just called her trash… I would have used much worse words when I was 22. So bravo Clara for your restraint. ;)

    • Aren says:

      Yes, I don’t understand the outrage, people are calling her immature for saying a person who broke the trust of the family is trash?
      It’s not like she aired any dirty laundry or posted naked pics of MEW, she just gave an opinion with a rather mild word.

  37. Marianne says:

    The thing is, we dont know what really happened behind the scenes. For all we know Ewan’s marriage could have already been crumbling and on the brink of divorce when he first hooked up with Mary Elizabeth. Sure, he very well could have waited until he and his wife were officially done…but can someone really be a homewrecker if the home is already wrecked? I do feel bad if his wife was very much still in love with him and thought they were both still happy and the affair totally came as a shock.

    Im sure his daughter knows more to the story than we do. But I have also known children to lash out even if the parent starts dating someone after a divorce. I think its ok to be upset over the situation but its not very healthy for her to go out of her way to trash Mary Elizabeth.

    • Jerusha says:

      Perhaps he shouldn’t have had her to his house for dinner with his wife and daughters. Tacky.

    • magnoliarose says:

      Ewan’s a notorious sleazy cheat and you are right we don’t know what was happening at home. However, he should have kept his dirt private and we wouldn’t even know about this but he didn’t. So he invited the world into his affair. He is not new to fame or what it means. There are no excuses except Narcissism for his behavior. His children are forced to live in a world where everyone and their dog knows that their father had so little respect for them and their mother that he chose not to give one shred of care about their feelings. MEW didn’t care either. They are both selfish and shameless.

  38. PBAN says:

    Just shows that no matter the age when parents split for whatever reason the child is still hurt. Shame

  39. Genessee says:

    Nah. I can’t hate on this. I would go SCORCHED EARTH on “the mistress” while making daddy’s life hell as well.

    Screw talk about maturity and high-roads. Clara doesn’t owe MEW anything. Not even politeness. MEW renounced that right when she (while being a long time family friend no less) decided to get involved with a very married Ewan and further mess up her friend’s dysfunctional relationship. She is not the only one responsible in Ewan’s affair (he’s a dog and the main culprit IMHO) but MEW also had a choice to engage or not. Actions have consequences.

  40. xena says:

    What strange reaction is this that it has become completly normal to pretend that homewreckers share none of the responisbility for destroying a family unit? Because this is what this people are consciously doing. This is not some sort of emotional accident that is somehow happening. It is intentional and yes, she can get called out from the people whom she hurt tremendously.

  41. Anon says:

    • fredsmother says:

      Lol. Dead!!!! Apt! Cos ain’t nothing hot about porridge-face Mcgregor; so it has gots to be his third leg. Poor children. My mind and mouth are dirty and “trash” is so mild a word, it’s almost polite euphemism in 2018.

  42. JaneDoesWork says:

    It can be both, you know. Clara calling Mary trash doesn’t make her dad less culpable, or disgusting. I’m sure she’s repulsed by them both. I think what REALLY bothers me about Mary is that she went to their home and let his wife cook for her. That really bothers me. You knew his wife, and you were still comfortable moving forward with a relationship with him. So screw the argument of “HE made vows, not her.” Its disgusting to do that to another woman, and they both share responsibility.

  43. JayneBirkenB says:

    The daughter doesn’t owe the mistress anything. Mistress and Daddy pataded their “new love” in public. Why does Clara have to the (completely undefined) high road? This is a nuclear bomb going off in her family and all her emotional security has been blown to smithereens.

    MEH and Ewan deserve all the public contempt. Fame isn’t protection from the shame of emotionally harming your kids.

  44. Surely Wolfbeak says:

    Does this mean they’re not doing the Obi Wan movie?

  45. gm says:

    I get why Clara is doing it, watching your mom be hurt is hard. But with life experience most us understand that MEW and EM are unlikely to stay together, this is hurting their careers (my guess is hers more than his) and your dad will end up with another younger woman, just one he didn’t cheat on your mom with. But Clara is hurt and angry now, because not only is her mom rejected she feels like she/ her family are too (whether they are or not). I have no sympathy for MEW and EM.

  46. Susan says:

    I don’t see the evidence anywhere that Clara isn’t extremely angry with Ewan. You can both be angry at the woman who brought incredible pain to your family and your father too. There’s enough anger to go around and her feelings toward Mary Elizabeth shouldn’t be discounted by saying she’s blaming the wrong person.

  47. Rebecca says:

    Why is it that some people feel that only the married person is responsible in an affair. I’ve heard way too many people use that as an excuse for sleeping with a married person. You are just as responsible for ruining a marriage as the married person unless you were lied to and didn’t realize the person was married.

  48. Diamond Rottweiler says:

    Expecting people who are the victims of this kind of emotional abuse—because betrayals like this are abuse—to remain “classily” mum about their feelings just perpetuates the “suffering in silence” misogynistic garbage women have been handed for forever. Who benefits from this silence? You don’t want to be called out publicly? Maybe think about that before you decide to lie, cheat, humiliate your partner and children, or actively participate in such abuse by enabling someone who is doing so. You live by the sword, you die by the sword. If men—because statistically it’s more frequently men who do this—understood there might be actual consequences for their actions, they might think twice. Maybe they’d even consider an honest approach with their spouse, being honest about wanting to possibly end the relationship. And women who participate in these betrayals get exactly what they’ve earned. Don’t want the drama? Don’t be a liar. Pretty simple.

  49. Patty says:

    Her ideal of her family and what her parents marriage was like is probably not how things really were; and she went out of her way to slam MEW which was totally unnecessary. I’m just over people using social media to air grievances. I bet she is angry at her father and upset / sad that her family is not together — but go to therapy, talk to your parents, and deal with that shit. She’s 22 not 12. She’s old enough to know better. Besides it very obvious that she’s doing this to get her dads attention, it’s not healthy, and I hope she deals with it and doesn’t let it jade her for life when it comes to relationships. You call your dads new GF trash on social media, it’s probably not going to make her feel better and it’s not going to bring her family back together either so I’m like what’s the point? Do people not have friends anymore that they can vent to about personal stuff? I just don’t get it.

    I’ve had coworkers get fired for social media activity that wasn’t related to work. It’s not worth it. I hope she learns that lesson quick.

  50. Sam says:

    No one is innocent here. It’s one thing for someone who lives a private life to be cheating on their spouse. It’s not okay, but you can say (as the mistress) that you were not aware he was married or in another relationship. In this case, he was famous and they worked and socialized together. She knew. She made the decision to disrespect his marriage and his wife as much as he did.

  51. Kitkatmeow says:

    Sneaking around and not being honest with your significant other about being unhappy or wanting out of a committed relationship isn’t a “mistake” – it’s intentional. You are doing what you want to do without giving your partner agency. Cheating is trashy and cowardly. Do the right thing and let your spouse know you’re not happy and are going to pursue another relationship. Cheaters just want to have their cake and eat it too = trash.

  52. lenje says:

    I don’t get it. So your whole defense of Ewan & MEW is because of your dislike to Clara?

  53. Jane says:

    I don’t understand why people are surprised their marriage ended it was a open one its known in the entertainment business why be surprised your husband caught feelings when she let him have sex with however he wanted Mary isn’t the first one

  54. Meggles says:

    “Known in the industry” or “random people online says it’s known within the industry”? I’ve seen all kinds of nonsense I knew from first hand experience was total lies spouted on gossip forums as “oh well it’s known within the industry” or “it’s an open secret within the industry.” If they had an open marriage it’s unlikely it would be causing so much strife.

  55. 2020vision says:

    @Jane, who would marry an actor, seriously?! They’re around some of the most striking and famous people (other actors) in exotic, fun-filling, exciting film locations all the time, and they have thousands of civilians throwing themselves at them! And so true about the open marriage as well. Ewen was TOTALLY with Melanie Laurent. Those pics don’t lie.

    I think a lot of these couples put up with the open stuff as an occupational symptom, and I believe people like Matthew McConaughey, who don’t cheat, are the 1%. They put up with it because they think the family and normality and promise of having a stable partner when you’re old could be enough.
