A rep for the actress confirmed to theLos Angeles Times that the 44-year-old Oscar nominee was admitted for exhaustion.

"God has a way of saying, 'You're doing too much! SAT DOWN SOMEWHERE,'" Henson wrote on Instagram. "I'm listening Father!!! I am taking several seats!!! Don't worry y'all I'm a tough cookie! HA! I will be just fine. My momma and best friends are flying in to check on me. I AM FINE!!!! Just need to SAT ALL THE WAY DOWN for a bit. #listentoyourbody"

Henson's message accompanied a picture of herself in bed with an IV needle in her arm.

The week has been especially busy for Henson, as she was promoting Empire earlier this week at the Monte Carlo TV Festival in Monaco alongside co-star Terrence Howard.
