Rob Gronkowski on the two rules he had in his house growing up

Well, then.

Rob Gronkowski, a man of many trades, appeared on Thursday’s The Late Late Show for what seemed like no specific reason other than to just talk about football with three other dudes: host James Corden, actor Liev Schreiber (who is in Spotlight), and actor Luke Wilson (who is promoting his Showtime series, Roadies).

In a conversation in which Gronkowski discussed being raised with three brothers equal to or bigger than he was in size, he told the group his childhood was just the best.

“We ate so much food, and it was insane,” he said. “It was the best time growing up. But there [were] brawls every day.”


When Corden probed about the extent of these brawls, Gronkowski said they were really just full-on fistfights.

“We had two rules in the house my parents created,” Gronowski said. “No hitting in the face, and no hitting in the gonads.”

As Corden put it: “Not the moneymaker and not the baby maker.”
