Ewan's speech was much less controversial than when he picked up a Golden Globe for Fargo on Sunday and thanked both Mary and his estranged wife Eve, the mother of his four daughters who he was reported to have split from late last year amid rumours of a romance with his co-star.

He said: "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.

"And there wouldn't have been any Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead."

Ewan McGregor's Ex Eve Mavrakis Breaks Her Silence: Calls Divorce 'Disappointing and Upsetting' .
Ewan McGregor‘s ex-wife Eve Mavrakis is breaking her silence about their split after 22 years of marriage. Mavrakis said that while the divorce is “upsetting,” she is moving forward by putting her attention on her family. “It’s disappointing and upsetting but my main concern is our four children are okay,” she told The Sun on Sunday. McGregor filed for divorce on Jan. 19, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their split. The star, 46, has asked for joint custody of their three children: Clara, 21, Jamyan, 16, Esther, 15 and Anouk, 6. Mavrakis’ filed her response, stating that she is asking for sole custody with visitation for her ex, according to the website. The documents list the date of separation as May 28th of last year. The couple announced their split last October, and at the time a family source revealed to PEOPLE that the couple had been separated since last May. The announcement came amid news that McGregor was spotted kissing his Fargo costar Mary Elizabeth Winstead. The Golden Globe winner, 46, took his romance with the actress public in November when he and Winstead were photographed walking hand in hand in Los Angeles. Winstead split from her own husband, Riley Stearns, in May of last year. They were married in 2010. McGregor met Mavrakis on the set of the British TV crime series Kavanagh QC and they were married in 1995.
