Luke Evans is finding that laughter is the best medicine.

The Fast X actor, 43, revealed Thursday that he was hospitalized, assuring his 3.2 million Instagram followers that his prognosis is "nothing serious" with a cheeky post featuring photos of him modeling a paper gown in his hospital room.

"Rocking some hospital fashion pieces today. Don't worry, nothing serious. I mainly came for the gowns," Evans captioned the post.

A rep for Evans did not have a comment for PEOPLE about the star's current condition.

He returned home earlier this week from the French Alps, where he celebrated his 43rd birthday with a group of friends, sharing photos of the festivities.

"What a very special few days I've had. With some truly brilliant human beings. Thank you for making my 43rd birthday go off with a bang!" he wrote on Instagram. "Especially @kellbell_red and Big John for being the most epic of hosts, and for @justinhornechef making me a tasty AF birthday cake! It's been wonderful. I blew out the candles Delta Force" style…apparently!!"
