Steven Spielberg’s Daughter Details Shocking Career as an Adult Entertainer

Mikaela Spielberg isn’t looking to “hurt anybody” — she just wants to “honor my body in a way that’s lucrative.”

In a revealing interview with The Sun published Wednesday, Steven Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw’s adopted daughter opens up about her career as an adult entertainer, which she revealed earlier this month on social media.

The 23-year-old — who describes herself as a “sexual creature” — has already produced solo pornography videos and hopes to become a dancer in a strip club once she obtains her sex worker license.

“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 exclaimed. “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.”

Though she wants to become financially independent from her famous parents, she did not choose her occupation to be spiteful.

“This isn’t like an ‘end of the road’ or ‘I’ve hit bottom’ choice. This is a positive, empowering choice. I realized there is no shame in having a fascination with this industry and wanting to do something that is safe, sane, consensual,” she contends.

In fact, Mikaela — who has chosen the stage name of “Sugar Star” —recently told her parents about her new career via FaceTime. While they were “intrigued,” they were “not 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 honor my body in a way that’s lucrative,” she remarked. “I actually think that once they see how far I’ve come from the bottom I was at a year and a half ago, they’re going to look at this and go, ‘Wow, we actually raised a really self-assured young lady.’”

While she believes she would be “great at fetish work,” she refuses to have sex with another person on-camera out of respect for her 47-year-old fiancé, Chuck Pankow.

“And 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 added.

In the candid interview, Mikaela — who currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee — also opens up about her history with substance abuse, mental health issues (including depression and borderline personality disorder), anorexia, and sexual abuse — from individuals outside of her familial and friend circle.

Fortunately, with help from therapists and her fiancé, Mikaela is now at peace with her life.

“I’m in a good place right now, but we all have relapses. Being open in this way and sharing my story and choosing this career is not a relapse for me. I actually feel very grounded and validated right now.”
