She set tongues wagging after she was spotted kissing Ewan McGregor during a dinner date last month – before he announced his split from wife Eve Mavrakis.
But Mary Elizabeth Winstead appeared to be in relaxed spirits as she stepped out on Tuesday, looking stylish in a cropped tweed jacket while running errands in Los Angeles.
The 32-year-old Fargo actress kept it casual as she stepped out without her new boyfriend Ewan, 46, who shares four children with his wife of 22 years, Eve.

Not scrimping on accessories, the brunette beauty rocked a pair of tan suede buckled boots and a simple leather crossbody bag.
No doubt keen to go incognito, Mary obscured her features behind some aviator frames and appeared to wear minimal make-up.
The Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World star looked to be in downtrodden spirits as she stepped out amid the furore caused by photos of her kissing married Ewan last month.

The couple were seen packing on the PDA during a dinner date three weeks ago.
One diner exclusively told MailOnline that the pair had initially been sitting opposite each other for the meal, but the brunette beauty soon ran round to share a cuddle and a kiss with the Golden Globe nominee.
The diner remarked that the pair looked so cosy he assumed the loved-up couple were Ewan and his French wife Eve, 51 – even remarking on how smitten they were ‘after so many years of marriage’.

The onlooker said: ‘I saw him sitting there and didn’t think anything of it. I recognised him and I thought I’d take a picture to show my family. I didn’t think anything of it at all until I saw the story about how he had left his wife.
‘When I saw them in the restaurant I actually thought it was him and his wife.
The diner added: ‘I commented to the person I was with that after being married so long it was nice they were so lovey dovey. He said to me “maybe it’s not his wife” Turns out it wasn’t.
‘She was initially sitting opposite him. She got up and he was messing about on his phone… She came back and sat with him, arms around his neck. There was lots of kissing and cuddling going on.’
Oh dear: The pictures of Ewan and Mary kissing emerged before he announced his split from wife of 22 years, Eve Mavrakis
The pictures caused shock as Ewan had not announced his split from his wife.
It has since emerged that Ewan and his wife had split months earlier – in May – the same month Mary Elizabeth announced her separation from her husband Riley Stearns.
Ewan and Mary starred together in the FX series Fargo – where Mary Elizabeth played his sexy love interest Nikki Swango.
And the couple seemed to have no problem flaunting their new romance, as they stepped out together in Hollywood, California, on Saturday.
The actor looked undeniably trendy alongside his Fargo co-star as they coordinated in matching biker jackets while holding hands as they made their way down the street.

Meanwhile, Ewan and his estranged wife Eve, 51, met on the set of TV show Kavanagh QC before Ewan became a big name in Hollywood. They share four children together.
Ewan’s wife of 22 years, Eve, has been staying in America with their four daughters since the first pictures of the actor and his new lover emerged.
According to recent reports, Eve felt ‘sick and furious’ at the affair allegations. The French production designer, who has been seen without her wedding ring, is trying to remain as ‘dignified’ as possible.
A source told The Sun: ‘She is doing her best to handle it with dignity. But what makes it worse is she has been told Mary Elizabeth had a teenage crush on Ewan. I’m sure a lot of people did but they didn’t go and have an affair with him.’
They added: ‘Mary went to the house once and met Eve and the kids over dinner. She was very cordial. It seemed logical she should get to know Ewan and the family.’
