Mikaela Spielberg, the adopted daughter of filmmaker Steven Spielberg and actress Kate Capshaw has said her parents are not “embarrassed” by her new career in the porn industry because they already knew she was going to be a pornstar.
The 24-year-old was speaking in reaction to people who said her parents were embarrassed.
She told The Sun: “My parents – despite what people have written – aren’t embarrassed, they were actually kind of expecting it to be my career… some sort of outsider art… or taboo art, because they’ve always known that I was a little bit neurotic.
“That’s not to say all performers are neurotic… just the kind of performer I am.
“They’ve always known that whatever I wanted to do in life I probably was going to do it whether they liked it or not.”
She added: “So it kind of felt like a little bit of a relief. It was like they were preparing themselves to get the news for this and they’re not sad for me and my choice of career.
“I’m not sad for them. People shouldn’t be sad for them. That’s the one big thing – people are like, ‘I feel sorry for your parents’. Nobody here is a victim.”
Mikaela’s boyfriend Chuck Pankow, 47, has also shared his support over his girlfriend’s new career.
He told The Sun: “If she’s happy and safe, I’m fine with it. It was a little weird at first when she was telling me what she wanted to do – I thought it was a little unusual.
“A conversation we had I asked her, ‘But I feel you have so much more to offer the world than tts and a* and she looked at me and said ‘Well why not both?’
“So I couldn’t really argue with that.”
