Steven Spielberg’s adopted 23-year-old daughter Mikaela revealed last week that she was starting a new career as a porn star.
And while the famous director reportedly supports his child, sources told The sun that he is also “ashamed” of her decision to continue working in the world of adult movies.
“At the latest, Steven and Kate – who are the most developed parents in the world and love their children to any size – have always supported Mikaela and try to understand her,” a family friend told the publication. “But of course they are ashamed of her sudden public admission to the world of sex workers.”
New venture: Steven Spielberg’s adopted 23-year-old daughter Mikaela revealed last week that she was starting a new career as a porn star
In a new interview, the adult film star from Nashville, who was adopted as a baby by Spielberg, 73, and his wife Kate Capshaw, 66, revealed that she only recently told her parents about her new work, but said they have strongly supported her career choice .
“My safety has always been a priority for them,” she said The sun, while revealing that she had shared the news with them through FaceTime last weekend. “I do this, not out of an urge to hurt or be annoyed about anyone, I do this because I want to honor my body in a way that is lucrative.”
Mikaela described herself as a “sexual being” and further explained that she liked to find a way to “cash in her body,” to be frustrated by working in a more traditional job that “didn’t satisfy her soul.”
She also shared that her new career gave her a sense of empowerment and self-confidence that she could never have imagined, with the budding stripper revealing that as a child she had been abused by “predators,” which later led to a series of mental health problems.
Support: Mikaela, photographed in 2009, told that she told her parents the news via FaceTime over the weekend and insists that she fully support her
In recent years, Mikaela has struggled with anorexia, borderline personality disorder and alcoholism, all of which she claims are the result of sexual abuse in childhood. However, she notes that her abusers were not part of her family or her parents’ inner circle of friends.
Mikaela, engaged to 47-year-old darts player Chuck Pankow, explained that the work she is doing now in the porn industry makes her feel good because she is able to “satisfy” others without being “violated.”
So far, Mikaela has only worked on solo videos, which she produced herself and then published on the popular free porn website PornHub. Since then, however, she has removed her clips because she wants to get her Tennessee entertainment license for adults before sharing more content.
And although she says she is open to trying ‘fetish work’, Mikaela insists that she will not have sex with another person on camera out of respect for her fiancé Chuck, whom she describes as 100% supportive of her career.
Cash: Her goal now is to earn enough in the industry so that she is “not financially tied up by things”
Trust: Mikaela says that working in porn has given her more self-confidence about her body and helped her see her big natural breasts as an asset, not something to be ashamed of
Although Chuck is now supportive, she admits that he has taken the time to get a grip on her adult work, which she says was partly due to his southern background, and noted that “there is still so much shame around it ‘is in the South.
“The reason I don’t want to do anything outside of solo material is because I feel it would be a violation of my limits and my relationship with my other half,” she said, adding that she thinks she is “good at” fetish work ‘.
Mikaela’s porn videos have so far focused primarily on her naturally large breasts, to which she refers her ‘money maker’ – and she admits she was never proud of until she first tried porn.
“To be honest, I have hated my chest for so long, but I finally learned to embrace it. That was one of the things when I uploaded these first few videos, I realized: “This is the money maker” – my big box, “she said.
Rules: The budding stripper has applied for a Tennessee entertainment license for adults and says she wants to secure a job at a strip club
Partnership: According to Mikaela, her fiancé, professional darts player Chuck Pankow supports her career, although he took the time to come up with the idea
Her videos include titles such as “I give my huge natural breasts some love and care with rose tea oil,” and “Huge breast woman satisfies herself in a peaceful environment.”
Although Mikaela has since removed her videos from PornHub, she says she has already collected quite a dedicated fan base, saying “cool things” about her body and her work, something she described as “fun and refreshing.”
“People can often be really upset about the body of a black woman,” she added.
But although her clips have been well received on PornHub, Mikaela has experienced a backlash from her social circle in Tennessee, blaming every “resentment” for being “the environment we now live in.”
She also insists that her choice to go to porn is not about ‘hit'[ting] bottom, “but rather about owning her sexuality – and earning money.
Her goal now is to earn enough in the industry so that she is “not financially tied up by things.”
“By the way, I can’t stay dependent on my parents or even the state – not that there’s anything wrong with it – it just doesn’t feel right for me,” she said.
Announcement: The adult film star first shared the news about her career change on Instagram in a post-deleted message
Family: Mikaela (photo on the left with her father and sister Destry, and on the right with her mother and Destry) revealed that she told her parents about her career on FaceTime last weekend
Forbes has estimated that her father’s assets are somewhere between $ 3.7 billion and $ 6.08 billion. In his illustrious Hollywood career, he directed and produced more than 100 feature films, including Jaws, ET, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, Saving Private Ryan, The Goonies, Indiana Jones, Hook, Catch Me if You Can and The Post.
And Mikaela thinks both her “wonderful parents” will approve of her path “when they see how far I have come.”
“They’re going to look at this and go,” Wow, we’re actually raised, confident, young lady, “she said.
Mikaela did not mention what her brothers and sisters thought of her chosen career. The porn star has three brothers and three sisters.
Her eldest sister, Jessica Capshaw, 43, was the daughter of her mother Kate with ex-husband Robert Capshaw, and is now a famous actress in her own right. There is also brother Max, 33, sister Sasha, 29, brother Sawyer, 27, sister Destry, 23 and brother Theo, 31, who has also been adopted.
But although a good number of her brothers and sisters have popped up in their father’s films over the years, Mikaela seems to have been pushed out of the spotlight to no.
Family: Mikaela noticed that she and her father were close by and described him as an “angel” who loves knowing her own mind
Independence: she noted that one of the main reasons why she wanted to find a lucrative job was that she could earn her own money and not trust her parents to support her lifestyle
She said that as a child she was “spoiled but responsible” and that her parents educated her to understand the value of hard work, human dignity and the influence of poverty on the world.
Mikaela noticed that she and her father were close by and described him as an “angel” who loves knowing her own mind. They enjoyed playing computer games and having ‘dorky’ conversations in which her father would ‘cherish’ her creativity and identity.
But she began to develop problems as she grew older and attributed her problems to abuse she suffered from someone outside the family.
By 11 she had started drinking to cope with her trauma, and as a teenager she was sent to a boarding school for restless teenagers.
But instead of helping her get in line, it aggravated her problems with anxiety, depression, self-hatred, and attachment. There she developed an eating disorder
She continued to drink for years and at the age of 21 she drank every day. She admits that she “nearly died a few times.”
Yet she said unambiguously that it was not her parents’ fault and that they “could not know” what she was dealing with.
“I’ve had my quarrels and struggles with them, but it’s only for fear that people might find it wrong because they want you to live and be safe,” she said. “They are some of the least hateful people I know. I love them so much. “
