Liam Hemsworth is taking it easy as he recovers from kidney stones.

The 29-year-old actor was briefly hospitalized on Saturday night, his Isn’t It Romantic costar Rebel Wilson first revealed over the weekend. PEOPLE confirmed on Monday that Hemsworth was dealing with kidney stones.

A source told PEOPLE that although Hemsworth “was briefly hospitalized,” he is now “at home resting and will be fine.”

The actor skipped press for the movie on Sunday and later missed the big premiere on Monday night in Los Angeles. But in a sweet gesture of support, his wife Miley Cyrus, 26, showed up to the premiere on his behalf and explained on her Instagram that the star was focusing on his health.

Speaking to PEOPLE at the Los Angeles event, costar Adam Devine sent Hemsworth his best and revealed that the two have been texting back and forth, joking he has sent Hemsworth “a lot of inappropriate texts” about his condition.

“Poor guy. I know he’s in a lot of pain and it really sucks what he’s going through, ’cause I know that he would want to be here and he’s a really fun guy to have around, so I’m really bummed about it,” said Devine, 35.

Hemsworth and Cyrus said “I do” in an intimate, secret ceremony at her home in Franklin, Tennessee, on Dec. 23, 2018. She wore an off-the-shoulder Vivienne Westwood gown while Hemsworth wore a traditional black tux.
