How Gronk showed his softer side on the 'Entourage' set

We learned long ago that Rob Gronkowski likes to cuddle with kittens. But it seems the big guy's softer side goes beyond tiny animals.

In a recent interview with Yahoo, "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly shared some light on who Gronk is when he's not on the gridiron or posing for fancy magazine photo shoots.

The actor broke his leg while filming a scene with Gronk, Julian Edelman and other NFL players last spring and it seems the Patriots tight end was very concerned.   

"These guys all went out of their way to come check on me," Kevin told Yahoo. "I was like the cousin nobody wanted you to know existed, they kept sending me further and further away. By the end of the day I was literally in the attic. And before he left, Rob Gronkowski came up to check on me. He didn't have to do that."

Gronk, Julian and Tom Brady are all set to appear in "Entourage," which hits theaters in June.
