Steven Spielberg's daughter says she's becoming an adult film star and Yahoo readers weigh in

Steven Spielberg is one of the most famous directors in the world, and now his daughter is getting into the family business — but you might be surprised at her first gig.

Mikaela Spielberg, the 23-year-old daughter of the Jurassic Park director and his wife, actress Kate Capshaw, revealed to The Sun that she’s becoming an adult film star and exotic dancer.

“I got really tired of not being able to capitalize on my body and frankly, I got really tired of being told to hate my body,” she told The Sun.

The Nashville, Tenn.-based actress told the paper that despite her family’s immense wealth she would rather make it on her own.

“I can't stay dependent on my parents or even the state for that matter — not that there's anything wrong with that — it just doesn't feel comfortable for me,” she said.

The Sun reports that Spielberg told her famous parents the big news over a FaceTime call and that they “weren’t upset,” but, rather, “intrigued.”
