Well this a plot twist if we’ve ever seen one.
If you didn’t know Steven Spielberg has 7 children and one of them is black. He adopted a child in 1996 while married to actress Kate Capshaw. Her name is Mikaela Spielberg and get this … she just announced that she is pursuing a career in adult entertainment.
Just because her dad is worth an estimated $3.7 billion, doesn’t mean she has to rest on those laurels. The 23-year-old shared the news during an interview with with UK tabloid The Sun on Wednesday.
“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,” she explained. “And I also just got tired of working day to day in a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul,” she told the publication. “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.”
The Nashville, Tennessee-based actress said she has always been a very sexually-natured person — “not in a predatory way, but just in the sense that people here in the South might not yet be comfortable with.”
Mikaela, who was adopted at birth by the “Jurassic Park” director, told The Sun her parents were “intrigued” but “not upset” when she broke the news via FaceTime over the weekend.
She also said she didn’t want to be dependent on her parents or the state, but insisted it wasn’t a “dead end”, rock bottom choice, but rather an empowering, positive one.
“I realized there is no shame in having a fascination with this industry and wanting to do something that is safe, sane, consensual,” she said.
Mikaela (pictured below on her Instagram) first revealed her new career on social media earlier this month.
She wrote: “I just launched my self produced adult entertainment career. Safe, sane, consensual is the goal y’all. “My body, my life, my income, my choice. I owe not a single person my autonomy or virtue just because of a name.”
She does however have a very strict stipulation on the films she makes: she won’t have sex with another person on camera; so solo stuff only.
“The reason I don’t want to do anything outside of solo stuff is because I feel like it would be a violation of my boundaries and my relationship with my significant other,” she said of her 47-year-old fiance Chuck Pankow.
