Ewan McGregor’s ex-wife Eve Mavrakis, 55, reveals she’s dating composer Jonathan Elias, 65

Ewan McGregor’s ex-wife Eve Mavrakis has revealed she is dating composer Jonathan Elias, four years after her split from the actor.

The French production designer, 55, confirmed she is in a relationship with the composer after sharing a loved-up snap from their ‘magical’ holiday to Italy.

Eve divorced actor Ewan in August 2020 after the couple split in 2017 following 22 years together, with the star welcoming a son Laurie with his new girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead in June.

Eve took to Instagram on Friday to share a loved-up snap alongside Jonathan after the pair enjoyed a romantic meal together in Lake Como, later confirming to The Daily Mail’s Richard Eden that they are a couple.

She captioned the post: ‘Lake Como. Magical. Thank you Jonathan.’

Eve’s daughter Clara, 25, appeared to showcase her approval for the romance by liking the snap. 

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Eve Mavrakis and Jonathan Elias for comment.

Composer Jonathan recently collaborated with the likes of Sting and Sinead O’Connor and has also worked with Duran Duran and Grace Jones. 

Ewan shares Clara, and daughters Esther, 19, Jamyan, 20, and Anouk, 10, with ex-wife Eve, they split in 2017 after 22 years of marriage and their divorce was finalised in August 2020.  

The couple, who met on the set of the TV crime drama Kavanagh QC and married in July 1995, first confirmed their split in 2017 amid claims Ewan had been seen kissing Mary Elizabeth Winstead in a London restaurant.  

Eve was pictured without her wedding ring at around the same time.

Ewan – who blamed ‘irreconcilable differences’ for the split – then began dating Mary. However, his decision to do so left the couple’s eldest daughter Clara furious.  

Ewan filed for divorce in 2018, with documents lodged at the LA Superior Court that year revealing that he and Eve were already locked into a dispute over money.

The papers showed the Trainspotting star believed he was paying more than he was obliged to to support his family, while Eve – who described the split as ‘disappointing and upsetting’ – believed the amount was too little.

She described the actress as ‘a piece of trash’ on Instagram, which accompanied a photograph of her father and Mary kissing at the Vanity Fair Oscars party in 2014.   

In the post’s caption, the fan had referred to Mary as ‘the most beautiful and talented woman on earth’ – something Clara was more than ready to refute.

‘Most beautiful and talented woman on earth??? Oh man y’all are delusional. The girl is a piece of trash :),’ wrote Clara in the post’s comment section.

Soon after her reply, another Winstead fan urged her to ‘say it to [Mary Elizabeth’s] face not [on] social media.’ 

They added: ‘It took TWO to undo this marriage. If a man OR woman is happy w/ their marriage no outside interference can destroy that!’

To the fan’s surprise, Clara firmly agrees with their assessment. ‘Yup it took two!! Mary & my father :),’ she wrote.

In an interview with The Times in August that year, Clara openly acknowledged the immaturity of her Instagram banter, but claimed that her rage was justified.

‘It wasn’t the most mature way to go about things, but I was angry and upset.’

According to Clara, there were things going on behind-the-scenes that became ‘a lot to deal with’ and eventually sent her over the edge.

‘There had been a lot building up to it and a lot to deal with – not to make excuses or anything – but, yeah, it wasn’t my finest moment,’ she admitted.

She also explained that she kept ‘being tagged in the photograph’ and was ‘seeing negative things about [her] mom.’ 

‘I said how I felt and I didn’t want to apologise for it. It wasn’t the right way to go about things, but it’s a hard thing to wrap your head around when you feel you had this idea of what the family unit is and then to have that shift. It’s very weird.’

Eve is known for her work on Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Imagine Me & You and Bandit Queen. 

Last month it was also revealed Ewan had become a father for the fifth time after welcoming his first child with partner Mary, a son named Laurie.
