Controversial actor James Franco was spotted snoozing at a late night, budget massage parlor in New York City, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

In video obtained by Radar from a man who says he was walking past the ShunFa Relaxing Center late at night, The Pineapple Express star, 41, can be clearly seen with eyes wide shut in a seat by the window.

“He was out cold. He was passed out in the seat right by the front window, it was as if he wanted to be seen,” said the source. “He had his headphones on, looked like he was fast asleep.”

According to the ShunFa Relaxing Center’s website, an hour-long, full body massage costs just $35 while an hour-long foot rub runs $24.99.

“It’s a cheap place on West 8th street in Greenwich Village,” said the source. "There's loads of more discrete places to sit in there, there's a room at the back, but he chose the seat right at the front."

Maybe Franco was trying to relax after ongoing sexual misconduct allegations against him?

As Radar has reported, just as Franco began to celebrate his big Best Actor win at the Golden Globe awards in 2018, a pair of actresses, including Ally Sheedy, implied Franco has a history of misconduct.

In just a few days, the number of sexual misconduct accusers had ballooned to five.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan – who was a student at Franco’s acting school – alleged that in 2015, he removed safety guards while she filmed an oral sex scene for The Long Home. Two other former students claimed he would get angry when they refused to do topless scenes.

Franco denied the rumors during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

“The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate," he said. "But I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long. So I don’t want to shut them down in any way.”

Franco, who stars on HBO's show The Deuce, about the Golden Age of the porn industry, also claimed he had “no idea” what he did to the women to make them accuse him of sexual misdeeds.

“Franco has had a bit of ‘MeToo’ trouble, and he hasn’t worked in a while,” the source claimed. “But other than that, that place ShunFa Relaxing Center is the bomb.”
