Prior to filming sad scenes, Hewitt told the outlet that she avoids looking at photos of her three children since seeing them brings out the opposite reaction in her. 

“I find it hard to look at pictures of my kids while I’m doing crying scenes because then I get really happy,” she said. “So, I tend to watch pimple popping videos.”

The “I Know What You Did Last Summer” actress shares daughter Autumn, 10, and sons Atticus, 8, and Aidan, 2, with her husband Brian Hallisay.

Hewitt also shared other techniques that have helped her act out emotional scenes. 

“I listen to a lot of music to kind of get in the mood,” she said, “And then I just try to keep it light for myself in between.” 

The Texas native shared that coming home to Autumn, Atticus and Aidan helps her shake off any negative emotions that she channeled while filming more dramatic fare.

“Honestly, the drama stuff has gotten easier for me since having kids,” Hewitt said. “Because I have such a better balance now of going to work and kind of being dramatic and doing all that and then the second that I walk in the door, it’s like you just have to be silly.”

“So, it lightens my mood up right away,” she said.
