James Franco let a drag queen pull down his pants and expose his naked butt during a surprise appearance at the annual HIV fundraiser, “Broadway Bares.”


The actor took the stage at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York on Sunday, and performed in a sketch in which he tried to gain entry into a fictional nightclub.

“Don’t you know who I am?” Franco asked the skit’s club “bouncer.”

That’s when a drag queen named Bianca Del Rio entered the scene, and demanded Franco “face the wall” before she put on a yellow rubber glove, indicating he was about to get a cavity search.

Just before Del Rio ripped his pants down, she said, “And just so you know Franco, this won’t be as painful as you hosting the Oscars.”

The lights then dimmed just as things were about to get even more interesting.

Franco clearly enjoyed himself as he took to Instagram to share his own photo of the crowd at the event, writing, “BROADWAY BARES!!!!! Support!!!!! I am. :).”
