While Steven Spielberg has been a household name for decades, his family has been able to hide in his shadow. And there’s a good reason for their obscurity. Spielberg and his wife, 66-year-old Kate Capshaw, adopted 23-year-old daughter Mikaela when she was just a baby. And now the young Nashville-based woman has come out as an adult film star despite her parents’ yearning to keep her safe.

Mikaela has revealed her new line of work to her parents and told her 73-year-old father how much she loves it. Although the news that their daughter is making money by having intercourse on camera came as quite a shock for Spielberg and his wife, Mikaela said that her adoptive parents have been very supportive of her passionate new career.

“My safety has always been a number one priority for them,” she said. She broke the news to parents via a FaceTime call over the weekend. “I’m doing this. Not out of an urge to hurt anybody or be spiteful about it, I’m doing this because I want to honor my body in a way that’s lucrative.”

It is uncertain if Spielberg’s career in the film industry inspired his daughter to follow in his footsteps. However, her desire to live her fullest life as a “sexual creature,” led her to a career in the adult film industry. That’s why she was eager to “capitalize on her body” because she was frustrated with traditional jobs and another career path that “wasn’t satisfying her soul.”

As a child, Mikaela suffered abuses at the hands of “predators.” By taking her body back and pursuing a career in the adult film industry, she feels empowered. The abuses she endured as a young child led to mental health issues later in life. Her new career in the adult film industry has helped give her some more confidence in herself and her body.

Mikaela has struggled with anorexia during the last few years. She has also had to cope with borderline personality disorder and alcoholism. She believes that these conditions were the result of the abuse she endured at the hands of the predators from her youth. She clarified that her abusers were not part of the family or part of her parents’ inner circle of friends.

Mikaela is currently engaged to 47-year-old darts player Chuck Pankow. She also said that her new line of work makes her feel “good.” Because she can “satisfy” other people without being “violated.”

Mikaela has only worked on solo videos so far. These pieces of content are self-produced and doing quite well on popular adult film websites.

However, she has since stripped the internet of her videos because she is working on gaining the Tennessee adult entertainment permit before she shares more content to the web.

Mikaela said she would continue to do solo work out of respect to her fiancé Chuck. He took a while to come around to supporting her unconventional career choice, but now he is on board with her.

She thinks she will be “great at fetish work.”
