Ewan McGregor’s daughter Clara has insisted she didn’t call her dad an ‘asshole’ when she was musing over her mother this week. The 22-year-old model posted a holiday snap boasting about her beloved mum, Eva Mavrakis, who split with Ewan quite acrimoniously last year, where she appeared to criticise her father. Or so thought many punters in the comments section. Posting a shot of her ma in a bikini to her Instagram, she replied to one fan who wrote: ‘Good to know you have the smoke show genes…keep her away from your boyfriends.’
Not leaving that piece of bread lie, Clara replied: ‘Nah I keep her away from a**hole men who leave my goddess of a mother :).’ Ewan and wife Eva Mavrakis split after 22 years of marriage last year, and, not long after, he began dating his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Clara previously voiced her unhappiness at the split and slammed Mary Elizabeth as a ‘piece of trash’ on social media, so it’s clear she’s not in the market of mincing her words. Obviously many felt she was referring to her father, who is currently in the midst of a divorce from Eva, but in a new social media post, Clara has insisted she wasn’t attempting to hit out at her dad. She simply wanted to say her mother ‘deserves someone’ in her life who isn’t an ‘asshole’. Yeah, fair dos, we suppose. She wrote on her Instagram Story: ‘Let’s make one thing clear. I was not attacking my dad or calling him [an] asshole. ‘I was simple saying she deserves someone who isn’t one. Don’t believe everything you read. (sic)’ Ewan filed for divorce from Eve in January 2018, requesting joint custody of their three minor children Esther, Anouk and Jamyan.
