“Reacher” star Alan Ritchson got candid in a new interview about past sexual assaults he experienced while working as a model.“There are very few redeeming qualities to working in that industry.

Let’s be honest, it’s like legalized sex trafficking,” Ritchson, 41, said in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, which was published on Wednesday. “The industry is not regulated, and it’s a widely known secret that if you’re hired on a job, you’re basically being passed off to a photographer to be trafficked.”“The number of times and situations where I was put in horrific environments where sexual abuse was the goal and the paycheck that you were desperate for in order to survive was the carrot, I can’t count on two hands,” he went on. “You’re always dancing around this very terrible line of, ‘How do I keep the job and not completely offend this photographer or this agent or whoever set this thing up, and how do I not get raped?’ I completely empathize with women who deal with dynamic power struggles with predatory people in the workplace.”“It’s still unfair, but if I really had to, I could get myself out of whatever room I was in through a physical altercation.

Most women don’t have that option. Imagine how terrifying it must be.”Ritchson modeled for brands such as JC Penney and Calvin Klein.
