A friend of Steven Spielberg’s family has told the New York Post that the legendary Jewish film director is “embarrassed” and “concerned” for his porn star daughter Mikaela.

In the wake of the recent bombshell announcement by the 23-year old adopted daughter of the celebrated American filmmaker that she was ready to foray into the world of adult cinema and become a porn star, the source was quoted as saying:

“As Mikaela said, Steven and Kate are nothing but supportive of her, as they are with all their children… 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.”

However, the source suggested that on a private note, one of the most popular directors and producers in film history and his film star wife may be having a difficult time accepting the newly-revealed career ambitions of their daughter.

Last week Steven Spielberg’s adopted 23-year-old daughter Mikaela revealed in an exclusive interview for The Sun that she was seeking to embrace the “sexual creature” that she was and embark on a new career as a porn star, eager to “capitalize on her body”.

The Nashville-based adult film star confessed she had grown frustrated with working in a more traditional job that “wasn’t satisfying her soul”.

Mikaela told the outlet she had been making solo adult videos that she posted on PornHub.com and was aiming to acquire a license to become an exotic dancer in Nashville.

Mikaela, who over the years has apparently struggled with issues like anorexia, borderline personality disorder, and alcoholism, claimed the career of a solo porn star had buoyed her confidence and brought a sense of empowerment she never thought she’d experience.
