Steven Spielberg, 73, is said to be ‘embarrassed’ by his daughter Mikaela’s surprise revelation that she’s launching a career in the adult entertainment industry, just days after the 23-year-old claimed that her father was ‘supportive’ of the move.

Despite Steven and his actor wife Kate Capshaw, 66, appearing ‘outwardly’ supportive and understanding, a family friend has told The Sun that it’s not the case behind closed doors.

“Obviously, though, they’re embarrassed by [Mikaela’s] sudden public admission of entry into the sex worker world,” the source said.

Mikaela Spielberg’s sex worker career

Mikaela - who was adopted by Steven and Kate when she was a baby - announced last Thursday that she currently makes a living out of producing solo porn videos and hopes to land a job as a dancer in a strip club once she obtains her sex worker license.

She told The Sun at the time that her decision was a ‘positive, empowering choice,’ adding that there’s ‘no shame’ in wanting to do something that is ‘safe, sane, consensual’.

After breaking the news to her famous parents via FaceTime over the weekend, Mikaela revealed that her mum and dad weren’t ‘upset’ but were ‘intrigued’.

Mikaela and Chuck

Mikaela’s fiancé, former American professional dart player Chuck Pankow, is also on board with her porn career although it took him a while to warm up to the idea because of the laws in their hometown in Tennessee, USA.

Mikaela says she isn’t interested in making pornographic videos with another person because it would be disrespectful to Chuck, 50.

During the interview, Mikaela also claimed she was groomed and abused by someone outside her family when she was a child.
