Taraji P. Henson Posts on Instagram From Hospital Bed: ‘I’m a Tough Cookie’

The “Empire” star is suffering from “exhaustion,” but “she will be good as new,” her rep tells TheWrap

Even Cookie can’t do it all without paying the price, and Taraji P. Henson‘s hectic schedule has finally caught up with her.

The “Empire” actress posted a photo on Instagram from her hospital bed on Friday, revealing an IV drip stuck in her forearm.

Henson is suffering from “exhaustion and she is resting … she will be good as new,” her representative told TheWrap.

“God has a way of saying ‘you’re doing too much!'” Henson wrote on the Instagram post. “I’m listening Father!!! I am taking several seats!!!

“Don’t worry y’all I’m a tough cookie!” she added. “I will be just fine. My momma and best friends are flying in to check on me.”



The busy actress flew to Monaco last weekend for the 2015 Monte Carlo TV Festival, where she attended the opening ceremony with Fox costar Terrence Howard.

The night before, she was in New York City to participate in a discussion of her career at the American Black Film Festival at the Hilton Hotel.
