Snappy shots for Ledger

'Brokeback' makes its way to Oz

WHAT: “Brokeback Mountain’s” Oz premiere on Jan. 13

WHO: Pic’s Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams

WHERE: Hoyts Cinemas adjacent to Fox Studios Sydney

SWAPPING SPIT: Three photogs sprayed Ledger with water guns in retaliation for his allegedly spitting on them last year when they tried to photograph him on location for upcoming pic “Candy.”

Moments earlier Ledger had greeted them affably and posed for pics, but chided one in particular for fanning incidents the previous year: “G’day mate, good story, well done,” he said.

“That was yesterday,” said the photographer dismissively.

After Ledger and Williams had moved along to a TV interview, the other photogs took action, causing Ledger to cancel further interviews.
