The actress explained in the caption: "When a dog bite lands you in the ER 30 mins before the red carpet! thank you @themobmuseum for having us, @thebirthdaycakemovie comes out in theaters and on VOD June 18th! @pgdm @swindled717 @sienaoberman congratulations!! thank you @fendi for the suit."

After their separation, Ewan began dating his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, which caused tension between Ewan and Clara. At the time, Clara commented on an Instagram post from her verified account and criticised her dad's new girlfriend. However, she has since spoken about how she will always love her dad and that her comment wasn't her "finest moment".

Ewan and Eve were married from 1995 until 2020

Happily, Clara is now close to both her parents and has even followed in her father’s acting footsteps. She made her aspirations clear in an interview with Playboy in 2018 – but also admitted she had tried to deny it for years.

She said: "All throughout high school I really turned my back on acting. I said I was going to be a photographer, I'm going to be behind the lens. At 12-years-old, I moved to LA, which is all Hollywood and all I was asked is, 'Are you going to do what your dad does?' I was rebelling."
