Jennifer Love Hewitt might play a 911 operator in Fox's 9-1-1, but she understandably can’t handle the stress in real life.

The actress shared with Ryan Seacrest that she doesn’t watch the show at home due to anxiety.

“It’s a crazy show,” Jennifer shared. “I have a lot of anxiety just in general so for me, I can’t watch full episodes of the show,” she explained. “It just makes me really scared.”

“Different things,” she shared. “I’ve tried meditation. I listen to calm apps. I think I got more anxious after I had kids because it’s such a huge responsibility to kind of take care of them and the last year, I think for everybody, has been extraordinary so I just have been sort of getting through it. Good days and bad days.”
