Leno asked Pattinson if his parents believe everything they read about him.

"It depends on the source," Pattinson said. "I mean, some sources are more reliable than others. I think that the magazines my mom read before I started being in them – the ones she used to buy – she trusts those, but any new ones . . . [he shakes his head no].”

He also explained how his father influenced his career.

"His favorite film is Jaws and that’s pretty much the only film he’s ever seen," he said. "In fact when I first started doing Twilight, he read the script. I sometimes send him scripts to read to see what his opinion is, and with Twilight, he said, ‘Well, I think it’s kind of a mixture between Jaws and Superman.”
