Ewan McGregor’s daughter, Clara McGregor, posted a series of messages on her Instagram page revealing that she went to rehab for a pill addiction, was in an abusive relationship and had an abortion.
Clara, who was outspoken about her parents split when Ewan left her mom, Eve Mavrakis, and started dating Mary Elizabeth Winsted, shared the traumatic details of her life in the past years.
“This was really hard for me to open up about so go easy on me ❤️,” she wrote on her Instagram page as a caption under two pages of notes.
“lil moment of honest in hopes that it can help others feel less alone.”
“This past year I dealt with addiction, I got sober, and I dealt with a great deal of depression and anxiety I had an abusive relationship, I had an abortion the list goes only,” Clara confessed.
Early in 2019 both Clara and her sister Esther revealed that they were bi-sexual, but Clara opened up more about her life-long struggles.
“Anxiety has been something Iv lived with since I was 4 years old. Iv been having panic attacks since I was a child and I didn’t know that I could live my life without this crippling fear. I didn’t know there was a way to get better. But there is. Help yourself so others can help you too. And never be ashamed to talk about it.”
Clara, a model who attended the prestigious New York University Tisch School of the Arts, shared the trauma she had suffered in recent years.
“Iv also struggled with substance abuse, due to my anxiety it led me to Xanax and I’m proud to say Iv been clean and sober off of pills for 110 days,” Clara shared.
The daughter of the actor who was caught up in the cheating scandal revealed she sought treatment at the famed Utah rehab center where Lindsay Lohan was also a former patient.
“I went to Cirque Lodge for a little while to get myself on track and met the most wonderful people who changed my life.”
Clara shared the depths of her misery. “I was so ashamed of my addiction, of my anxiety and depression. I was ashamed of the abuse I had let happened to me. I blamed myself for the bruises, the black eyes the rapes and for the attacks a man did to me. But I’m regaining this power now.”
She expressed her happiness at her current state, writing: “Iv had a hard year Iv been figuring out who I am but I feel so loved and blessed with where I am now. Thank you to those who helped me through my darkest times.”
Clara also fought back against her bullies from high school.
“It’s ironic as f**k that the girls who were raging b**ches to me in high school like my photos and DM me now. Gtfo yall were fake then and your fake now.”
She continued, “Hey Xrds2014 ladies remember the lies y’all fabricated? There were some original ones I must say. Almost 24 and the girls who were bitches now want my approval.”
Clara shared her terrible high school experiences.
“Girls and sometimes guys bullied me til my senior year. In low key ways many people wouldn’t notice. Girls in my high school would tell people I was a slut and sleeping with 10 men at a time. I was often pegged a whore or a loser. I’d walk into parties and girls would act as if I wasn’t there or as if it was an inconvenience for them I was there. I was there. Bullying happens everywhere and to anyone.”
She also listed “things that made me feel ashamed when they shouldn’t have didn’t need to,” and revealed: “Getting an abortion. Il say it again, I got an abortion.”
