Ewan McGregor looks stressed as his Beetle breaks down

He ‘disappointed’ his estranged wife Eve Mavrakis last weekend, when he filed for divorce after 22 years.

But Ewan McGregor ran into yet more stress this week when his beloved 1954 vintage Beetle broke down in LA.

Spotted for the first time since proceedings began, the actor, 46, did not seem to be having the best of days.

The Trainspotting star had to push the overheated classic car off a busy road into a quieter side street during morning rush hour.

Lifting the bonnet, Ewan inspected his steel-blue Beetle, appearing to tinker with the motor before deciding to make a call for advice.

The Scottish hunk was casually-clad in beige chinos, white trainers and a khaki top for the solo outing. 

After 10 minutes working on the car, Ewan managed to get the engine up and running and was able to drive it to a nearby garage.

The Fargo actor, whose first car was a 1987 lime green Beetle, has previously described his passion for motors describing himself as a ‘VW nut’ when he sold his rust-coloured 1960 Ragtop Patina Monster on eBay two years ago.

His outing comes after it was revealed that Ewan cited irreconcilable differences in his divorce filing, which came to light late last year when he was seen kissing his Fargo co-star and now-girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead.  

TMZ report that the star is requesting joint custody of their three minor children, however claims Eve is asking for sole custody with visitation for Ewan. 

MailOnline contacted a representative for Ewan at the time.

Ewan was married to Eve for 22 years and the couple share four daughters, including Clara, 21, Esther, 16, Jamiyan, 16, and Anouk, six.

After over two decades of marriage, the pair split in May however did not publicly announce the news – yet six months later he was pictured kissing Mary, 33.  

Ewan stunned fans at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month when he took to the stage to accept his award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie and thanked both his ex-wife and girlfriend.

He said: ‘I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years. And my four children, I love you.’
