Jonah Hill - Jonah Hill's Quiet Escape At Hearst Castle Ruined By Lady Gaga Video Shoot

Actor Jonah Hill had his plans for a quiet break at California's famous Hearst Castle ruined recently after Lady Gaga took over the estate to film a new music video.

The Wolf of Wall Street star wanted to enjoy a low-key getaway before the Academy Awards next month (Mar14) by visiting the former home of media mogul William Randolph Hearst, which is now a state park, last week (ends14Feb14), but he reveals the trip was far from relaxing.

The Oscar nominee tells U.S. talk show host Jimmy Kimmel, "I wanted to take a trip just to clear my head and get away from all this Hollywood stuff and just go somewhere pretty and different and where I wouldn't see anyone from work or anything, so I decided to go up to Hearst Castle, which was beautiful...

"I was meant to have this private tour of the castle and I get there and they're shooting a Lady Gaga music video... There's just trucks and lights (everywhere) and I'm like, 'Oh no, this isn't a vacation at all!' and I knew all the teamster drivers, I'd worked with them on other films and stuff! I won't give away what the video's about because she's worked really hard on it, but I wasn't going to see 500 dancers... you know? But it was great, it was a beautiful castle, it just wasn't the desired escape that (I'd had in mind)."

Gaga agreed to help promote and preserve Hearst Castle by donating $250,000 (£156,250) to the estate's foundation in exchange for special permission to spend three days shooting a video at the architectural landmark.
