Jonah Hill's quiet break in California's Heart Castle was ruined by Lady Gaga who was filming a music video at the location at the same time.

The Wolf of Wall Street star had planned to take a low-key holiday before the Oscars in March but he told Jimmy Kimmel that the break was far from relaxing when the Venus singer rolled up to film a video.

Hill explained, "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 that the video's about, because she's worked really hard on it, but I wasn't going to see 500 dancers you know?"

He added, "But it was great, it was a beautiful castle, it just wasn't the desired escape [that I had in mind]."
