'Empire' actress says she's doing 'just fine,' but needs to sit down for a while

Taraji P. Henson has been in extreme 'go' mode since landing her starring spot on Fox's "Empire," but life has finally caught up with the star. The 44-year-old actress was hospitalized Friday for exhaustion.

"God has a way of saying 'you're doing too much!' 'SAT DOWN SOMEWHERE'. I'm listening Father!!! I am taking several seats!!! Don't worry y'all I'm a tough cookie! HA!" she shared with fans on Instagram, posting a picture of her arm with an IV drip.


Last week, Henson was in New York City as celebrity ambassador of the 2015 American Black Film Festival and later jetted to Monaco for the 55th Monte Carlo TV Festival.

"I will be just fine. My momma and best friends are flying in to check on me," Henson added. "I AM FINE!!!!!!! Just need to SAT ALL THE WAY DOWN for a bit. #listentoyourbody."
