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," Slade told me earlier today while promoting this week's release of the Eclipse DVD (out Dec. 4). "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?"

So, do you think Breaking Dawn should be the end of Twilight or should it go on Bond-style? Sound off below.

And that's not all I have for you from Mr. Slade. Make sure to come back here tomorrow to find out about the scenes that didn't make it into the movie, what he would do with Breaking Dawn and so much more.
