Mikaela told her Spielberg and mother Kate Capshaw about her career move over Facetime.
Daughter of legendary film-maker Steven Spielberg, Mikaela Spielberg, 23, revealed on Wednesday that she is starring in her own solo adult videos. She told her Spielberg and mother Kate Capshaw about her career move over Facetime during the weekend. Mikaela said that her parents were “intrigued”, but “not upset” and revealed that her fiance - professional darts player Chuck Pankow - was also supportive.

The 'ET' director’s daughter announced that she plans on embarking on a career as a “self-produced adult entertainer” and hopes to become an erotic dancer. Mikaela explained to another publication, “I got really tired of not being able to capitalise on my body. 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.” Mikaela has chosen Sugar Star as her stage name.

Mikaela, who was adopted as a baby by the Spielbergs in 1996 has six siblings who include Jessica Capshaw, Max Samuel Spielberg, Theo Spielberg, Sasha Rebecca Spielberg, Sawyer Avery Spielberg and Destry Allyn Spielberg.

Mikaela said that while growing up, 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 had earlier said. She has also battled with anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and drinking problems.

“It’s not my parents’ fault. They couldn’t have known,” she said. Mikaela also suffered from sexual abuse and said 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.
