This past week, news broke about Steven Spielberg’s daughter Mikaela who has openly admitted to starting a career in the adult film industry. Mikaela, who turns 24 years old on February 28, is the daughter of famed film director Steven Spielberg and former actress Kate Capshaw. Actress Maitland Ward, who once was a star on the hit TV show Boy Meets World has since become an adult star herself and recently commented on Mikaela’s decision while talking to a cameraman from TMZ.

Ward believes that Mikaela will be “protected” in the industry, not just because of her name, but because a lot in the industry has changed. Ward went on to say, “It's amazing. I think we're living in a really changed world when it's becoming accepted and celebrated, in many ways. Listen if she wants to do this, and live in her truth and her authenticity, and she loves sexual performing, go do it.” Sounds like Mikaela definitely has a supporter in this former TV star.

Mikaela Spielberg opened up about her decision to venture into adult films, stating that she will be starring in her own solo videos, while also working to obtain a stripper’s license in the state of Tennessee. Mikaela opened up to The Sun and explained that she “got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body and, frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body. I also just got tired of working day-to-day in a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul. I feel like doing this kind of work, I’m able to ‘satisfy’ other people, but that feels good because it’s not in a way that makes me feel violated.” Mikaela then added it was more of an empowering decision than anything else.

Ward seemed to mirror Mikaela’s sentiments when approached by TMZ commenting on the fact that men are encouraged and praised for being porn stars, meanwhile women are often being shamed for it. When told that Steven Spielberg was concerned about his daughter’s safety, Ward went on to say, “In any industry, you should be concerned. In Hollywood, you should be concerned. We see all these cases coming out. Especially if she's meeting people in person, that's really when you need to be concerned.”

When Ward was asked if she would work with Mikaela if she had the chance, Ward said yes. She stated, “I'm open to anybody who is wanting to explore and do this, and if this thing was right it could be really awesome.” Ward then joked about making an adult film parody of one of Spielberg’s classics. Something tells me that Spielberg wouldn’t be too thrilled about having an adult film remake of one of his classic movies starring his daughter…just a hunch, though.
