An Unorthodox Career Choice

Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw's adopted daughter Mikaela Spielberg announced that she would be pursuing a career in adult film, creating solo pornographic videos on an OnlyFans account that people can view for $15 a month.

Mikaela gave an interview with The Sun explaining her choice in career and described herself as "a sexual creature."

"I 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.

And 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."

She Claimed Her Parents Were Cool With It

Mikaela, who lives in Nashville, wrote about her career on social media, explaining that this was empowering, not an "I've hit rock bottom" choice.

"I've always been a very sexually natured person, which has gotten me in trouble before. Not in a predatory way, but just in the sense that people here in the South might not yet be comfortable with that."

Ultimately, she claims that this is a decision based on financial freedom, and she no longer wants to live on her parents' money.

"My main hope is just that I get somewhere lucrative enough to where I'm not tied down financially by things. And then I can really start saying to people there's nothing wrong with me using my body in a way that feels comfortable to support myself.

I can't stay dependent on my parents or even the state for that matter - not that there's anything wrong with that - it just doesn't feel comfortable for me."

Are They Embarrassed?

Apparently, Mikaela broke the news to her parents over FaceTime and that they were "not upset." She told The Sun:

"I have amazing parents that had their struggles with me, I've had my fights and struggles with them, but it's only out of fear that people sometimes care incorrectly because they want you to be alive and safe. They are some of the least spiteful people I know. I love them so deeply."

A source told The New York Post that "As Mikaela said, Steven and Kate are nothing but supportive of her, as they are with all their children."

Public Perception

However, a family friend told Page Six that they are concerned about Mikaela's choices.

"Outwardly, Steven and Kate — who are the most evolved parents in the world and love their kids beyond all measure — have always been supportive of Mikaela and try to understand her. Obviously, though, they’re embarrassed by her sudden public admission of entry into the sex worker world."

Ultimately, they are hoping that this choice to pursue a career in sex work doesn't lead to confusion for their children.

"Nothing can hurt Steven Spielberg’s immaculate reputation, nor Kate’s, but they’re worried about how [Mikaela’s revelation] looks for their other kids, who are trying to be supportive but who are also embarrassed. This certainly isn’t how they were raised."
