EONLine- MarcMalkin If Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart were ever bothered by the constant paparazzi and tabloid attention to their private lives during the making of Eclipse, director David Slade says he didn't know anything about it.
And even if he did, Slade wasn't about to get involved in any of the dramarama. It's not that he didn't care, but…
"We had a very tight schedule so there wasn't much time to be too sympathetic, to be honest," "We had to go. We had to shoot. We had shoot after shoot after shoot. We had a 50-day schedule which isn't normally what you have for a film of this scale."
"So we just had to crack on," he continued. "If anything, there wasn't time to go, 'How are you feeling today? Are you all right? What's going on?'"
They were so busy that Slade says he never even had the chance to get to know Pattinson, Stewart and the rest of the cast too well. "All the time we spent together was working," he said. "We never hung out and had a beer. We were rehearsing. If we weren't rehearsing, we were shooting. If we weren't rehearsing or shooting, we were sleeping."
Even so, maybe we'll see Slade directing another Twilight movie one of these days? Sure, the Breaking Dawn flicks are supposed to be the last two installments of the megahit vampire franchise, but Slade laughed, "There was only going to be three James Bond movies, right?"
At least David is honest. Why am I missing Chris Weitz and Catherine Hardwicke so much? lol Oooh hopeful about 'Bond reference' comment.
Next Movie Any Twi-Hard knows that Bella Swan’s extravagant wedding to her handsome vampire suitor occurs in the beginning of series closer “Breaking Dawn” — chapter three, to be exact.
But according to David Slade, the director of the “Twilight Saga: Eclipse” adaptation, it might have come a little earlier on the big screen.
“We discussed a lot of the things at the script-writing stage — at one point, we were even going to shoot the wedding at the end of ["Eclipse"] but we knew there was another film coming,” Slade tells NextMovie exclusively.
“We knew that a lot of that could go into the next film. And we just made the most concise version of this story that we could.”
LA Times caught up with director David Slade, who steered the third installment of the franchise, as he reflected on his whirlwind year in the Twi-universe. After all, a year ago at this time, Slade was only a month into editing the flick.
"Finishing the film is a moment of great weight. It's not just getting it cut, it's when the final print is timed and there's nothing more to do," he said. "It was the night before we did our press junket we finished it."
Finished staring at the famous faces of Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner, that is. Slade, whose pedigree is in music videos and darker indies such as "Hard Candy," said he did his best with the "Eclipse" DVD to please the vampire saga's legions of fans.
"This is the only thing I've ever done that's had such a fan subculture, so with the deleted scenes I wanted to do a little justification for them," Slade said.
Chief among the scenes cut from the theatrical version of the film was an exchange between Stewart's Bella and her on-screen dad Charlie, played by Billy Burke.
[Spoiler alert!] The two have a bonding moment after her high school graduation, one of Bella's last mortal activities before Pattinson's Edward follows through on making her a vampire.
"It's all in Billy's face, when you watch the film 30-odd times or more, there's more in his face than in his words," Slade said. "I was so confident that was going to make it in, we did it in one shot. It was two people trying to be as close to each other as possible."
MTV David Slade talks about the DVD special six-part making-of documentary.
"I can't remember it," he admitted rather sheepishly. "I do remember having to watch it to approve it and stuff."
"All credit due to the people who made the behind-the-scenes. They were almost invisible when we were making the film. They really were exceptionally discreet. So I can't remember them ever being there," he said. "I noticed them with a camcorder every now and again. I remember grabbing a hold of it once or twice and gesturing into the camera, but other than that, I don't remember them being there. You could attribute this to old age."

From Collider , here are some excerpts.
David on his fave scene to shoot...
"There are favorite scenes or moments, and there were things that were just predictably fun. The scene where Charlie (Billy Burke) and Bella (Kristen Stewart) have the discussion in the kitchen, which starts out as trying to explore whether she understands this need for marriage and turns into this admission of being a virgin, was genuinely fun because both actors have great comic timing. It wasn’t about going in to find the joke. The joke was there, and everything was actually a bonus. I remember that being tons of fun.
Do you feel it was a help or a hindrance with Eclipse that the cast had already been together for two previous films?
SLADE: It was a bit of both. Yes, there is something absolutely wonderful to build upon because they’ve done it before. But, the way it worked for me was that I met each actor individually and asked, quite honestly, what worked and what didn’t work, so we could excise what didn’t work and build upon what worked. And with so little time to shoot the film, and pressures of the schedule and weather, and all the rest of it, it certainly wouldn’t have been as successful, had they not been through this before.

Norman's Rare Guitars Facebook "Thanks Robert Pattinson for stopping by Norman's Rare Guitars on Saturday. Robert bought a Fender Stratocaster John English Master Built Zebrawood Guitar! Enjoy that amazing guitar!"
From kristenteambr "We have received information that one very lucky fan named Priscilla, had a chance to meet Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson in a restaurant. According to the friend of the fan, who gave us information, they were accompanied by few people and security guards. Below is the autograph that Priscilla got. via doughtwittfunny
Oh and Taylor was with them.
@doughtwittfunny "Hi guys. News to you guys. Has a friend of mine in the U.S. that saw the Twilight trio in a restaurant in for lunch. Check it out!"
Special thanks to @beejelly_
This was said to be last week or the week before, most probably from Louisiana, where else? lol
EOnLine Rob and Kristen were spotted out together in Los Angeles over the weekend, at a low-key hang:
An employee confirms to E! the on- and off-screen couple stopped by Roxy's Famous Deli in the San Fernando Valley on Friday night. The gorg duo apparently flew way under the radar, and was left pretty much alone, says an onlooker who, well, really didn't care (or care to gawk).
No wonder Robsten much prefers hanging in the Valley! Kristen is always over there, and goes fairly unnoticed.
Stewart's parents live on the other side of the debauched Hollywood Hills, so we assume that's where R. and K. spent Thanksgiving. Because we hear they did spend it together.
Saturday is when there was another Rob sighting out in Hollywood.
lol Duh, like they would spend Thanksgiving apart.

kristenstewart.com.br interviewed Roberta Thaise, Kristen's stunt in Brazil. translation
KSBR: We've heard you mention many times that people thought that you and Kristen look alike. What do you think about that?
R: Kristen is so beautiful, her beauty is so divine that the fact that someone thinks that we look alike is a very huge honor.
KSBR: Did you take a picture with Kristen and Robert?
KSBR: She commented to you something about you look alike?
KSBR: Can you tell us something about the scenes?
R: All I can tell you is that the scenes are AMAZING. Wait for it. I'm sure you'll gonna love it.
KSBR: How did you react when you knew you were hired to be a stunt of a worldwide known saga, with thousands of fans?
R: I was flattered and very happy, I knew about the huge responsibility!
KSBR: At the end of shooting, did you feel that you could have help more than you helped or done anything differently?
R: Thank God everything worked out. I wouldn't have done anything different.
KSBR: How was your relationship with Robert and Kristen?
R: A proffessional relationship.
KSBR: Do you think Rob and Kris were enjoying Brazil?
R: Well, it's difficult to answer, but I think they enjoyed Brazil very much.
KSBR: If you could define Kristen by a word, what would it be? And Robert?
R: Kristen is lovely and Rob is humorous.
KSBR: You don't speak english. How did you communicate with the production?
R: Talking in spanish.
KSBR: What was your first impression of them? They look like a real couple?
R: They are the Hollywood's cutest couple. Kristen is very sweet and everybody can see that Rob is in love with her.
note: In the original interview, Roberta says Kristen is "amorosa" - meaning loving, different from 'very sweet'. Thanks Anon.
KSBR: Are you a Twilight fan? What did you think of Kristen before filming? And then?
R: I don't consider myself a Twilight fan, but a Kristen fan. And being able to know an idol is exciting. Now I want to see all the Twilight movies and I just bought the last book that I can't stop reading. I think I ended up being a fan after all.

I know what you're thinking, nope, it's NOT that 'honeymoon' gif. lol
But you've got to admit this one is quite lovely , uhmm, but no feathers?
For new fans and for those of you who may have missed this - when it was first posted last year .
Giving in to Kylie and Blu's request. lol Thanks for your letter, 'dudes'.
From @DrownInIt Thanks bb. GMTA indeed! Love this!
FLASHBACK VIDEO: footage frm inside NM after party at 1:40 Over-invested body language analysis below ;)
You can see R/K standing near each other, each involved in their own conversations.
Some guy approaches TayStew and makes a motion to leave, he puts his arm on Kristen to tell her they want to go. Then she looks to see what Rob's doing and very quickly and subtly touches his back to signal she's ready to go.
He looks immediately but no other communication is needed and she waits and continues talking to Dakota while he wraps up his conversation.
Adorably, Rob is drinking a coke and anytime Kristen dances, it's pretty much the cutest thing ever.
We swear their intimacy and awareness of each other is something only seen in couples that have been together for a hundred years. Kind of awe-inspiring.
Bonus: you can see CamStew and TayStew stand up to hug Stella Maeve by the extremely phallic fixture toward the beginning of the vid. Once they sit back down, Kristen and Dakota are visible behind her.
