EXCLUSIVE: Destry Allyn Spielberg Discusses Challenges of Launching a Career in Parents' Shadow

By
When your father is literally the person who comes to everyone's mind when they think of "famous directors," it can be hard to make a name for yourself.
That's something Steven Spielberg and actress Kate Capshaw's daughter, Destry Allen, opened up to ET's Denny Directo about while discussing her burgeoning modeling career at Thursday night's "An Unforgettable Evening" benefiting the Women's Cancer Research Fund in Los Angeles.
"I have a stage name, which is Destry Allyn," the 20-year-old model explained. "And as much as I love my name, it is literally, my last name -- like any other person."
Still, Destry recognizes what carrying the Spielberg name means.
"Unfortunately, and fortunately, it is an iconic name," she said. "When you hear 'Spielberg,' you think of Steven. And, starting to become a woman, and kind of shining light on me, I'm trying to do Destry Allyn, because that's who I am."
And thankfully, Destry says her dad is completely behind her going her own way -- even if it means having to explain some of the racier photos!
"Oh, god! Literally, I'm like, I promise I won't do anything bad," she laughed. "I don't want to."
