(Newser) – If you're still wondering what, exactly, Lost was about … don't bother asking Naveen Andrews, otherwise known as Sayid. Andrews revealed this week that he never actually watched an episode of the show in which he starred. (So, according to Jezebel's Lindy West, "as far as he knows it was just a show about a guy on a beach yelling 'SHANNAN! SHANNAN! SHANNAAAAAAAAN!' for six years and then dying.") Andrews isn't the only TV actor to skip watching his own series: The Huffington Post rounds up five more:

  • Connie Britton: She was simply "too scared" to watch American Horror Story, but says she's going to force someone to watch it with her.
  • Jerry Springer: He hosts his talk show, but that doesn't mean he watches it—since it's not exactly aimed at his demographic, he once explained. "If I were in college, I would watch," he added.
