The lure of seeing “Twilight Saga” star Robert Pattinson was enough to get a host of women to camp out overnight in front of NBC Studios in Burbank on Monday night.

Although that fact proves he doesn’t need it, when the British actor appeared on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” on Tuesday, Robert revealed that his dad has given him advice to use on the ladies.

“He sends me these great things,” Robert said, breaking out his PDA, which contained an e-mail from his dad. “I’m sorry to do this, but I thought it was so sweet… He’s like, ‘Dear Rob, I’ve been thinking about gestures and a good one in my opinion is to kiss a lady’s hand.

”‘It’s very romantic and refined,’” Robert continued, quoting his dad’s note as Papa Pattinson blushed and shook his head from the “Tonight Show” audience. “‘Offer her hand ostensibly to kiss… Shake and then the kiss. I impressed your mother that way.’”

The “Eclipse” star also told Jay that his dad has advised him on celebrity behavior too.

”‘Dear Rob, I was thinking last night about Yves Montand, the great French actor,’” Robert recounted, reading another e-mail with a laugh. “‘And I thought about his elegant way of acknowledging the audience at an Oscar ceremony by gripping his wrist with one hand and raising both arms aloft… I know I’ve mentioned this before, but the reason I was thinking about it [was] because I watched a program last night on TV featuring some current celebrities here and I was shocked by how vulgar they were.’”

Robert admitted he was thinking of trying out the noble wrist and hand raising gesture, but said he hadn’t found an opportunity to use it properly.
