Steven Spielberg supports adopted daughter Mikaela's decision to work as an adult star, stripper
Los Angeles, Feb 20 (IANS): Filmmaker Steven Spielberg's daughter Mikaela is pursuing a career in the adult entertainment industry.
The 23-year-old girl, who was adopted by Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw when she was a baby has started producing her own adult videos.
She also would love to work in a strip club once she obtains her stripper license, web reports said.
Mikaela has chosen Sugar Star as her stage name.
"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 wrote on Instagram.
Hoping to become financially independent from her parents, Mikaela said she "just got tired of working day to day in a way that wasn't satisfying (her) soul."
She told reporters: "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 broke the news to her parents through Facetime.
According to her, they are "intrigued" but "not upset."
Her fiance Chuck Pankow, 47, supported her decision as well.
She has started building her fan base, which consists "mainly older white men".
Out of respect for Pankow, she will only do solo videos and won't have sex with another person on camera.
"I think I would be great at fetish work," she said.
She added: "Honestly I have hated my chest for so long but I've finally learned to embrace it. That was one of the things when I uploaded these first couple of videos, I realised, 'This is the moneymaker' -- my large chest."
Growing up, Mikaela said she was a rebellious child and was sent to a boarding school for troubled teens.
"I came out of there worst than I was going in," she said.
She also shared her battle with anxiety, depression, eating disorder, and drinking problems.
"It's not my parents' fault. They couldn't have known."
She also suffered from sexual abuse when she was young. She said she was groomed and abused by "predators."
She claimed those men were outsiders and not anyone from her family or their circle of friends. She was additionally "bullied viciously" in school because of her last name.
