Vin's Vices: Hey, nobody's perfect, right?!? Apparently, Vin is a social smoker but he says he doesn't drink... Here's something interesting: during his stint as guest on The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart pressed Vin about whether he got his Iron Giant/bouncer/bedroom voice from a smoking habit; rumor has it that Vin evaded the questions because he didn't want to influence kids into thinking that it's cool to smoke; and the fans ring out "VIN, YOU'RE MY HERO"
