Jake Gyllenhaal was left in pain after shooting gay love scenes with HEATH LEDGER in new movie Brokeback Mountain.

The pair play cowboys who fall in love in the western - and Gyllenhaal found the shoot particularly punishing.

He says, "Heath almost broke my nose in (a kissing) scene.

"He grabs me and he slams me up against the wall and kisses me. And then I grab him and I slam him up against the wall and I kiss him. And we were doing take after take after take. I got the sh*t beat out of me.

"We had other scenes where we fought each other and I wasn't hurting as badly as I did after that one."
