If you’re a Twilight fan, you don’t need anyone to explain the appeal of Robert Pattinson. If you’re not a Twilight fan, maybe you’ll learn something from watching Robert Pattinson on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Read on.

Robert Pattinson of The Twilight Saga was a highly appreciated guest on The Tonight Show last night. Watch the entire interview here for the first time, or (you can admit it) for the fifth time today.

Turns out that both of Pattinson’s parents were with him at the show. Leno asked if his parents believe the crazy things tabloids print, and Pattinson said that they used to but not so much anymore.

Another cute fact about Pattinson’s parents is that Mr. Pattinson (read: Dad) doesn’t like many films aside from Jaws, and he sends his son lots of e-mails. Rob read some of the e-mails.

We have the NBC video’s here, as well as the Youtube clips embedded under the jump for the overseas readers who need their Pattinson fix.
