He left his wife of 22 years ‘heartbroken’ after ending their marriage when he fell for his younger co-star.
But Ewan McGregor has now been dumped by his mistress Mary Elizabeth Winstead because she hated being labelled a ‘home wrecker’, according to sources close to the couple.
Scottish-born McGregor, 46, filed for divorce from wife Eve Mavrakis, 51, last month – six months after being spotted kissing Miss Winstead, 33, his co-star in the cult TV series Fargo.
The Trainspotting and Star Wars actor blamed ‘irreconcilable differences’ for the split from his wife, the mother of his four daughters who are aged between six and 21.

Eve was reportedly left devastated after pictures were published last October of Ewan kissing his co-star in a London cafe.
His 15-year-old daughter Esther later posted a song on Instagram about the ‘s*** I found online’, singing: ‘Seeing those pictures, they’re making me cry… And I don’t know how to forgive. I don’t know if I can.’
The news of McGregor’s reported split from Miss Winstead is revealed in the latest edition of US magazine Star.
A source told the magazine: ‘Mary hated being labelled a home wrecker and the embarrassment it caused her. It’s sad because a year ago Ewan and his wife were in great shape and then he decided to throw it all away for Mary. Now it looks like he’s lost them both for good.’

Last night McGregor’s estranged wife told The Mail on Sunday, ‘No, I hadn’t heard’ when asked if she knew about her husband’s split from his lover.
Asked for comment, she said: ‘I really don’t know. Sorry.’
Production designer Eve was said to be ‘furious’ when her husband won the Best Actor In A Limited Series award at this year’s Golden Globes and thanked both her and his mistress. ‘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,’ McGregor said. ‘And there wouldn’t have been any Ray [his Fargo character] without Mary Elizabeth Winstead.’
When asked about his words, Eve said: ‘No, I did not like his speech.’

She called their divorce ‘disappointing and upsetting’ before adding: ‘My main concern is our four children are OK.’
McGregor and Miss Winstead play an engaged couple on the show.
Miss Winstead announced she was splitting from her husband of seven years Riley Stearns last May – as she filmed the series.
The Mail on Sunday attempted to contact spokesmen for McGregor and Miss Winstead but neither answered repeated requests for comment on the split.
