Taraji P. Henson has reassured fans that she’s “fine” after sharing a picture of herself from her hospital bed.

The 44-year-old reassured fans after posting a picture of herself in a hospital bed with an IV in her arm.

Taraji has yet to reveal the reason behind her admission, but said it was due to food poisoning.

According to the outlet, Taraji, who was in Monaco earlier this week, has been unable to keep anything in her system since getting off her plane from Europe to America on Thursday.

"God has a way of saying, 'You're doing too much! SAT DOWN SOMEWHERE.' I'm listening Father!!! I am taking several seats (sic)!!!" Taraji wrote alongside the snap on Instagram.

"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."

Taraji’s hospital trip came just hours after she spent some time with Laura Brown, the Executive Editor of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

Laura had shared a selfie with Taraji on her Twitter page, writing: “Taraji's obsessed with me. And you know what, I get it. @tarajiphenson."

Taraji is currently preparing to start shooting the second season of her hit show Empire, in which she plays Cookie Lyon.

The actress has enjoyed huge success as the outspoken Cookie, who she recently admitted she based on her late father Boris.

“She’s based on my dad,” Taraji told Allure magazine. “He shot straight from the hip. He said whatever came to mind, and most times it was the [truth]. You either love or hate a person like that.”
