Legendary Film Director Steven Spielberg ‘Embarrassed’ and ‘Concerned’ for Adopted Daughter Mikaela After 23-Year-Old Announces Porn Star Career

Director Steven Spielberg’s 23-year-old daughter, Mikaela (right with her father at the 2009 Academy Awards), revealed this week she stars in porn videos.

This week brought a Steven Spielberg blockbuster no one saw coming.

On Wednesday, the director’s daughter Mikaela announced to the world that she is embarking on a film career of her own — as a porn star.

The 23-year-old told The Sun about making solo sex videos that she posted on PornHub.com and how she is working to get licensed to become an exotic dancer in Nashville.

The self-proclaimed “sexual creature” said she “got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body.”

She’s now launched an account on the OnlyFans app, on which viewers can pay a $15 monthly subscription fee to watch her.

Despite this, Mikaela said that her parents, Steven and his actress wife of 29 years, Kate Capshaw are “not upset” and are even “intrigued” by her life choices.

A Spielberg source told The Post that, “As Mikaela said, Steven and Kate are nothing but supportive of her, as they are with all their children.”

But, according to a friend of the family, there’s more to it.

“Outwardly, Steven and Kate — who are the most evolved parents in the world and love their kids beyond all measure — have always been supportive of Mikaela and try to understand her,” said the family friend. “Obviously, though, they’re embarrassed by her sudden public admission of entry into the sex worker world.”

Kate, 66, and Steven, 73, met on the set of his 1984 film “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” in which she co-starred, and she converted to Judaism to marry him. The couple has seven kids between them.

Jessica Capshaw, who has acted on “Grey’s Anatomy” since 2005, is Kate’s 43-year-old daughter from her marriage to Robert Capshaw, a marketing manager. Max, 34, is from Steven’s marriage to actress Amy Irving. Kate had an adopted son, Theo, now 31, and Steven adopted him too. The couple went on to have daughters Sasha, 29, and Destry, 23, and son Sawyer, 27, as well as adopting Mikaela.

“Nothing can hurt Steven Spielberg’s immaculate reputation, nor Kate’s, but they’re worried about how [Mikaela’s revelation] looks for their other kids, who are trying to be supportive but who are also embarrassed,” said the family friend. “This certainly isn’t how they were raised.”

Recently, Mikaela posted on Instagram a photo of herself as a toddler and wrote: “I was such a determined child, here’s a photo of me marching away from Bill Clinton at a family gathering. I’ve always been this strong and bold . . . I yield to nobody.”

She attended the exclusive Crossroads school in Santa Monica, California, which counts Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson, Zooey Deschanel and Jonah Hill as alumni.

Like her siblings, Mikaela was on the front lines for her dad’s career: going to the Oscars, attending movie premieres and joining him on film sets.

But Mikaela has said she struggled with bipolar disorder and anxiety. She told The Sun she was bullied for her weight and famous last name. Being sent to a boarding school for troubled teens, she said, didn’t help: “I came out of there … with more anxiety and more attachment issues, more depression and more hatred from my body.”

She also claimed that, as a child, she was groomed and abused by “predators” who were not in her family or their circle of friends.

Mikaela told The Sun how she had struggled with alcoholism, saying that as recently as two years ago she was drinking every day and came close to dying from it.

She now lives in Nashville with her fiancé Chuck Pankow, a darts player who, at age 50, is more than twice Mikaela’s age. He has said the two met at a bar.

Mikaela has said that she won’t make porn with another person because “it would be a violation of my boundaries and my relationship with my significant other.”

She’d previously dated heavy metal singer Aaron Hodges.

A friend of Mikaela’s in Nashville told The Post: “Mikaela and I met at a cafe. I was discussing the differences in Reformed, Orthodox, Hasidic and Qabalistic Judaic practices with a friend who was studying to become a Rabbi when she walked up and joined right into the conversation,” said Chris Marsicano, 33, who makes candles and oils “catered to the occult.”

“She’s a very bubbly and jovial person and has a deep knowledge and understanding of Judaism . . . as well as a vast knowledge of other religions,” he said. “It wasn’t until the aftermath of the Charlottesville [massacre], when we went for proper drinks to calm our nerves at the idea of what it meant to be Jewish in this country now, that I found out she was a Spielberg.”

Recently, Mikaela posted a topless photo on her now-private Instagram account and wrote: “I just launched my self produced adult entertainment career . . . I owe not a single person my autonomy or virtue just because of a name.”

But, of course, the Spielberg name comes with an enormous legacy. Her father’s net worth is valued at $3.7 billion by Forbes. Among Steven’s best-loved films are “Saving Private Ryan” and “Schindler’s List,” both of which won best picture Oscars, as well as “E.T.,” “Jaws,” “Jurassic Park,” “The Color Purple,” the Indiana Jones films and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind.”
