Daughter of legendary director Steven Spielberg, who directed films like Jurassic Park, Jaws, etc., – Mikaela – revealed that she has begun producing solo adult film videos with the stage name ? Sugar Star. The 23-year-old further confessed that she wanted to work as a stripper at a club.

Mikaela, who is one of the adopted daughters of Steven (73) and his actress wife Kate Capshaw (66), clarified that her parents have been quite supportive in her new endeavour. She broke the news to her parents via face time and admitted that initially they were ?intrigued by her career choice but weren’t ?upset? at all. Their foremost concern was only her safety. During the interview, Mikaela also said that shes always been a sexual person that got her in trouble previously.

Speaking about ?financial independence? and ?capitalising? on her body she said, that her major concern is to get good work not and not get tied down financially. She further said that she wanted to tell people about how shes not wrong in captitalising her body.

Mikaela also confessed that she had previously posted few videos of hers on Porn Hub (porn website) under the stage name Sugar Star but took them off temporarily as she was waiting to procure her license as a sex worker, which is yet to be approved by Tennessee’s Sexually Oriented Business Licensing Board.

Speaking about the reason behind associating with porn, she said that she got really tired of not being able to capitalise on her body and instead being told to hate her body. She said, I just got tired of working in such a way that wasn’t satisfying my soul. I feel like doing this kind of work; I’m able to satisfy? other people. It feels good because it’s not in a way that makes me feel violated.

Speaking about her 47-year-old fiancé Chuck Pankow, she said that she wouldn’t have sex on camera with anyone else, as it would be a violation of her boundaries and relationship with her partner.

Mikaela is one of Steven and Kate Capshaw’s seven children – Jessica Capshaw, Max Samuel, Theo, Sasha Rebecca, Sawyer Avery and Destry Allyn.
