Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead’s café kiss-a-thon wasn’t a one-off. There’s a full-blown romance brewing, new photos show, PDA and all.

The Fargo co-stars — who were spotted kissing in a London restaurant in October, leading to the reveal that McGregor’s marriage of 22 years had ended — were snapped holding hands on the way to the Hollywood Pantages Theatre for a performance of Hamilton on Wednesday. They were twinning in matching motorcycle jackets (the 46-year-old Scottish actor famously biked 19,000-miles from London to New York) as they walked next to each other with their fingers intertwined.

Their date comes just weeks after they were first photographed during a hot and heavy make out session in West London. After the photos hit the tabloid the Sun, the Star Wars actor announced his split from his production designer wife Eve Mavrakis, to whom he was married for more than two decades; they have four children. A family source told People that they separated in May.

Winstead previously announced the end of her marriage of seven years to film director and television writer Riley Stearns in May. She called him her “best friend” in a post on Instagram, but then later deleted it.

She hasn’t deleted a social snap she posted in February of herself with McGregor. They were in Canada, where Fargo was shooting. One of his characters (he played twins) was engaged to her character on the show.


While things now seem full steam ahead between McGregor and Winstead, it looks like it was a bumpy transition. Days after the news broke of McGregor’s new romantic status, one his daughters — 21-year-old Clara, a Wilhelmina model — took to social media to give her mom a shout-out amid the public drama. She called Mavrakis “my rock” and the “strongest, smartest, most loving woman I know” in a Twitter post. Interestingly, her famous dad was cropped out of the photo. Yes, that’s his brow.
