Mikaela, who had been adopted by Spielberg and his wife Kate Capshaw as an infant, told: “The Sun” she hopes her new career will inspire her.
“I was really sick of not capitalizing on my body and, frankly, I was really tired of being asked to hate my body,” she told the newspaper.
“And I just got tired of working day by day in a way that didn’t please my soul as well.”
“I feel like doing this kind of work, I can ‘satisfy’ other people but it feels amazing because it’s not in a way that makes me feel humiliated,” she explained.
“I’ve always been a very se-xually defined person who has bothered me before. Not in a manipulative fashion, but more in the sense that people here in the South might not be comfortable with that,” she said.
“My biggest goal is only that I get somewhere secure enough to where things don’t tie me financially. And then I can just start telling people that there’s nothing wrong with me using my body in a way that feels safe to support myself.”
Mikaela clarified she doesn’t want her parents to be financially dependent on her. “For that matter, I can not remain dependent on my parents or even on the state-not that there is something wrong with that it just doesn’t feel right for me.”
She continued: “It’s not like an ‘end of the line’ option or ‘I’ve reached the bottom.’ That’s an optimistic, motivating choice, I realized there’s no shame in getting a fascination with this industry and wanting to do something that’s healthy, stable, agreeable.”
Via FaceTime, she told her parents, saying they were “intrigued,” but “not angry.” “My safety has always been their number one concern,” she added. “I’m doing this because I want to respect my body in a lucrative way.” “I just think that if they see how far I came from the bottom I was a year and a half ago, they’ll look at this and go, ‘Wow, we’re actually raising a pretty self-assured young lady.”
And while Mikaela is able to film solo se-x videos, she does not want to have se-x with another human on camera out of respect for her fiancé, Chuck Pankow, who plays professional darts. She frankly helped her embrace her body with her new line of work. “And it was so good and refreshing to hear people say cool things-because sometimes people might say something really disturbing about the body of a black woman,” she added.
