Zac Efron, who seems to be in every other movie these days, still found time to pick up a home in Hollywood Hills recently for $3.995 million.
The former teen idol, who owns another house nearby in Hollywood Hills West, bought a two-story Zen-inspired contemporary behind gates at the end of a long driveway.
The 5,644-square-foot home, built in 1964, features panoramic city-to-ocean views, expanses of glass, an open floor plan, a wine cellar, a gym and a fountain inside the entry. Including the guesthouse there are five bedrooms and five bathrooms.

The more than three-quarter-acre lot contains a pool and spa area with a waterfall.
Efron, 26, became a teen heartthrob in the films "High School Musical" and "Hairspray," as well as the TV series "Summerland."
His recent work includes the current historical drama "Parkland" and last year's "At Any Price" and "The Lucky One." He will be in "That Awkward Moment," baring most of his physique, and "Neighbors," a fraternity-moves-in-next-door flick, both set for release next year.
James Crane, Connie Blankenship and Michele Oliver of Coldwell Banker were the listing agents. Kathrin Nicholson of Westside Estate Agency represented Efron.
Finishing up her home work
Jessica Simpson, who earlier this year bought a Hidden Hills estate from Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, has sold her home in a guarded enclave in the 90210 ZIP Code for $6.4 million.
The custom-built Hamptons-inspired traditional was built in 1991 and recently renovated by Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture. Features of the house include crown and base moldings, high ceilings, a commercial-grade kitchen, a home theater, an office/library, a gym, five bedrooms, six bathrooms and 5,500 square feet of living space. There is a stone courtyard with a koi pond and a swimming pool.
The singer and television personality, who launched numerous beauty and accessory lines, has a net worth estimated at $100 million. The 33-year-old starred in the films "Major Movie Star" (2008), "Blonde Ambition" (2007) and "The Dukes of Hazzard" (2005).
She bought the property in 2005 for $5.275 million. Simpson, 33, paid $11.5 million for the Osbourne home.
Ready for another adventure
Orlando Bloom has listed his compound in Hollywood Hills West for sale at $4.5 million or for annual lease at $16,500 a month.
Set behind wood gates, the house was the target four years ago of the so-called Bling Ring burglars, who focused on celebrities including Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.
The four-bedroom, four-bathroom house, built in 1940, features a walnut double-door entry, three fireplaces, a den/office, a library and 3,248 feet of living space.
The wooded three-quarter-acre lot has a swimming pool with spa and is equipped with security cameras.
Bloom, 36, will star in "Zulu," set for release in December. He starred in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Lord of the Rings" movies.
The actor bought the property in 2007 for $2.75 million, according to public records.
