Ewan McGregor raised eyebrows at the Golden Globes on Sunday when he thanked both his ex-wife and the woman he left her for in his acceptance speech.
McGregor won his first ever Globe when he took home best actor in a limited series for his role in Fargo.
Accepting his award on stage, the 46-year-old paid tribute to estranged wife Eve Mavrakis and his children.
The Star Wars actor then left viewers gobsmacked as he went on to mention 33 year old Mary Elizabeth Winstead, his Fargo co-star who he left his wife for last year..
“There wouldn’t have been Emmit Stussy without David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbarg and Carrie Coon and there wouldn’t have been a Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead.”Fans took to Twitter in shock and amusement at the awkward and uncomfortable speech.
Estranged wife Eve, 51, saw the speech and was so hurt by it that she finally broke her silence following the couple’s marriage breakdown.
Approached by the Daily Mail at the former marital home in Brentwood, Los Angeles, she said: “No, I did not like his speech.”
Asked why, she replied: “For the same reasons you are here asking me about it. I am not going to say any more.”
