Steven Spielberg's daughter launches career as a porn star

Steven Spielberg's daughter, Mikaela Spielberg, has revealed she is now involved in the adult entertainment industry and her father supports her career.

The 23-year-old daughter of the legendary filmmaker - who was adopted by Steven and his wife Kate Capshaw when she was a baby - currently makes a living out of producing solo porn videos, and hopes to land a job as a dancer in a strip club once she obtains her sex worker license.

"This is a positive, empowering choice, I realised there is no shame in having a fascination with this industry and wanting to do something that is safe, sane, consensual," she told The Sun. 

Mikaela broke the news to her parents via FaceTime over the weekend, and says that whilst they were "intrigued" by her career choices, they weren't "upset".

"My safety has always been a number-one priority for them. 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 honour my body in a way that's lucrative,” she said.

And she also has the support of her fiancé, Chuck Pankow, although she admits it took him a while to warm up to the idea because of the laws in their hometown in Tennessee.

That support goes both ways, as Mikaela says she isn't interested in making pornographic videos with another person, because it would be disrespectful to Chuck.

During the interview, Mikaela also claimed she was groomed and abused by someone outside her family when she was a child.
