Busy Pooh-ing nothing… Why Ewan McGregor is taking time off
EWAN McGREGOR says he has been putting in the time with his kids since news of his affair with Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead emerged.
The Scottish actor insists life is ‘brilliant’ despite his daughter Clara, 22, calling 33-year-old Winstead ‘a piece of trash’ after news of the romance coincided with the end of his 22-year-old marriage to her mum Eve Mavrakis.
Now the dad-of-four reveals he has not taken on any work since finishing his new live-action Winnie the Pooh flick Christopher Robin. ‘I haven’t worked since this film wrapped last November,’ said the 47-year-old. ‘I took this time off, I needed to and I wanted to. I look back now and I’m thinking, “What have I done?”. I’ve sort of done nothing, but I’ve been really busy doing nothing,’ he told ITV, adding: ‘Nothing leads to the best something.
‘In actual fact it’s been brilliant having this time off, I spent a lot of time with my kids, a lot of time doing things I like to do, like riding my old bikes, tinkering with cars.’
