Last year, the world learned that Ewan McGregor split from his wife of 22 years. Some say that they separated last Spring, but the secret got out when Ewan was spotted kissing Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Whoops.
Well, now Ewan is taking things a step further -- because he's filed for divorce.
Ewan's 15-year-old daughter is not taking it well. And, as you can see in the video below, she's baring her soul in a song that kind of roasts her dad.
Ewan McGregor is one of those actors on whom everybody's mom has a crush. Or maybe I'm generalizing?
Anyway, he's best known for his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
Most recently, though, Ewan McGregor starred on Fargo. And do you know who one of his costars was?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
In one of those life-immitates-art scenarios that seem to happen when there's a middle-aged man spending a lot of time with a beautiful younger woman, the two went from sharing scenes to sharing kisses in public.
It's believed by many that Ewan McGregor may have separated from his wife, Eve Mavrakis, some time in the Spring of 2017.
Ewan's family has characterized this as a mid-life crisis. Ewan is 46 years old. Together, he and Eve have four children.
TMZ reports that Ewan McGregor has filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.
He's filing for joint custody and expressed a willingness to pay spousal support.
TMZ mentions that their sources say that there's no pre-nup in place, so this could be a very costly split -- with their shared property being split in half.

It may be that Ewan isn't too concerned about money at present because he anticipates a revival of his Star Wars career.
At this year's Golden Globes, Ewan McGregor was sporting a beard reminiscent of his Obi-Wman role.
Additionally, rumors have been circulating that an Obi-Wan film is in the works, though Disney has yet to confirm this. It will reportedly begin filming in 2019.
We don't imagine that he'll be locking lips with Mary Elizabeth Winstead in that -- Obi-Wan's only canon love interest was Duchess Satine of Mandalore, and she died before the events of Revenge of the Sith.
But if he comes out of this divorce hurting financially, an influx of cash from Disney might be just the balm that he needs.
But there's more than one way to be hurt.
Did you know that those kissing photos with Mary Elizabeth Winstead surfaced on the birthday of Ewan McGregor's 15-year-old daughter, Esther McGregor?
Divorce is an important option for so many couples, but more often than not, it's hell on kids.
Some children blame themselves.
Others feel betrayed by a parent who seems to be tearing apart their family. Esther McGregor clearly falls in the latter category.
In a video posted to Instagra, Esther sings a song that she wrote.
She all but spells out that it's about her father's new relationship. She even throws in a line about the world (herself included) seeing her dad kiss his new girlfriend on Esther's birthday.
In the lyrics, Esther responds to the "s--t" she "found online" with:
"I don’t know to forgive. I don’t know if I can. Ruining me."
She has a lovely voice. We're sorry for what she's going through. Divorce, as a process, can be hell. There's really nothing that you can tell the kids to show them the light at the end of the tunnel. This is a very healthy way for her to express herself.
Also, again, she sings beautifully:
