Around Hollywood, Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate Capeshaw are known as loving, “evolved” parents who try to support all their children’s choices, a close friend has said in a new report.

The couple also move in a world of creative. “artistic” people whose lives are “complicated” and who have “complicated kids,” the friend added.

But the decidedly complicated choice of their 23-year-old daughter, Mikaela Spielberg, to become a porn star and exotic dancer has tested the couple’s ability to be patient and open-minded, this friend told Page.

On Wednesday, the Academy Award-winning director’s daughter announced in an interview with The Sun that she was embarking on a film career of her own — to become a porn star.
