Steven Spielberg's 23-year-old daughter announces her new porn career

Hollywood commodifies women.  It always has and, the #MeToo movement notwithstanding, it always will.  Maybe, then, it shouldn't be a surprise that on Wednesday, news broke that Steven Spielberg's 23-year-old daughter Mikaela is going to make it on her own commodifying herself as soft porn artist selling films highlighting her big breasts.

Before he became a one-man conservative political dynamo, the late, great Andrew Breitbart teamed with Mark Ebner to write Hollywood, Interrupted: Insanity Chic in Babylon — The Case against Celebrity.  The book looks at drug use, rehab chic, sexual perversions, hard-left politics, and other Hollywood insanity.  Its hardest-hitting chapters are the ones that examine how Hollywood's stars raise their poor children.  It's a world of unimagined wealth, parental neglect, fad parenting, experimental schools, endless nannies, and social posturing.  As often as not, children end up being props, no matter how well intentioned their parents.

We don't know what went on in the house of Stephen Spielberg and Kate Capshaw, but their child Mikaela was an unhappy child and a troubled young adult — and now seems to have decided that the best way to empower herself is through pornography:

Steven Spielberg's adopted 23-year-old daughter Mikaela has revealed she is working as a porn star, while opening up about the sexual abuse that she suffered as a child. 

In a new interview, the Nashville-based adult film star, who was adopted as a baby by Spielberg, 73, and his wife Kate Capshaw, 66, revealed that she only recently told her parents about her new line of work, but said that they have been very supportive of her career choice.

'My safety has always been a number one priority for them,' she told The Sun, while revealing that she broke the news to them via FaceTime over the weekend. 'I'm doing this, not out of an urge to hurt anybody or be spiteful about it, I'm doing this because I want to honor my body in a way that's lucrative.'

She also shared that her new career has given her a feeling of empowerment and confidence that she never thought she'd be able to have, with the budding stripper revealing that she suffered abuse at the hand of 'predators' as a child, which later sparked a series of mental health issues.

Over the past few years, Mikaela has struggled with anorexia, borderline personality disorder, and alcoholism, all of which she says are the result of childhood sexual abuse. However, she notes that her abusers were not a part of her family, or her parents' inner circle of friends.

Thus far, Mikaela has only worked on solo videos, which she self-produced and then published on popular free porn website PornHub. However, she has since removed her clips because she wants to obtain her Tennessee adult entertainment permit before sharing any more content. 

And while she says she is open to trying 'fetish work', Mikaela insists that she will not have sex with another person on camera out of respect for her [47-year-old] fiancé Chuck, who she describes as being 100% supportive of her career.

Maybe we're being old-fashioned and judgmental, but it's sad to think that a beautiful young woman feels empowered only when she has strangers staring at her naked breasts for money.

While Mikaela is careful to say that Spielberg's and Capshaw's parenting choices had nothing to do with her issues and her career choice, one can't help thinking Mikaela has to have been affected by the fundamental weirdness that is Hollywood.  The combination of almost unimaginable wealth and a complete lack of values is a bad environment for any child, especially one vulnerable to substance abuse and mental health problems.

This sad little tale is another reminder, as if we needed one, that the last thing America should be doing is taking moral and political advice from people in Hollywood.  Their world is disconnected, faddish, and perverse.  While we can enjoy their onscreen artistry, they are not people we should choose as role models.
