In the interview promoting his film Mid 90s, the 34-year-old actor told Stern, 64, that in the past year he has tried to live a healthier lifestyle.

"No I don't drink. I just don't drink. I just don't party," Hill told the media mogul. "I like to be healthier. I like to be in a good mood. Being hungover effects your mood — to me at least. I support people who are living their lives and being happy."

The comic also said he doesn't smoke marijuana, despite starring in many "stoner" films.

Though he has given up many vices, Hill admitted he still struggles with smoking cigarettes.

"I'm a human being, so I'm trying to quit smoking. That's a really f**ked up one," Hill continued. "It's the last thing I'm working on."

The actor's music manager brother Jordan Feldstein died last December at just 40 years old from a pulmonary thromboembolism. The coroner's report also indicated he suffered from bronchopneumonia, and had traces of cocaine in his system at the time of his passing.

"The only reason I don't want to talk about it, is because it's painful," Hill explained. "Not out of disrespect. But I miss him and I love him and I wish he was here."
