Early life

Mary Elizabeth Winstead was born on November 28, 1984, in Rocky Mount, North Carolina, to Betty Lou (née Knight) and James Ronald Winstead and is the youngest of five children. Her grandfather, Ambler William Winstead, was a cousin of actress Ava Gardner. When she was five years old, her family moved to Sandy, Utah, where she attended Peruvian Park Elementary and took advanced classes. She studied dance in a Joffrey Ballet summer program in Chicago and sang in the International Children’s Choir. During her youth, she hoped to pursue a career as a ballerina and appeared in local ballet productions. As she entered her teens, she was forced to quit ballet due to her height. She later said, “I realized pretty early on that I was already too tall by the time I was 13… You know, your body has to stay that way for your entire life, and it’s pretty hard on your muscles and your bones.” Realizing a dance career was unlikely, she turned to acting. As she was still a teenager at the time, this required her to be homeschooled through most of high school.

Personal life

In 2010, Winstead married filmmaker Riley Stearns,  whom she had met at age eighteen on an ocean cruise. She starred in and produced Stearns’ debut feature film, Faults, in 2014. She announced their separation in May 2017 and their divorce was finalized later that year.

It was reported in October 2017 that she was in a relationship with Scottish actor Ewan McGregor, whom she had met on the set of the Fargo television series. Their son, Laurie, was born on June 27, 2021.[157][158] Winstead and McGregor married in April 2022.
