Lena Dunham's time at the Met Gala was cut short on May 1, 2017, when the "Girls" star was reportedly rushed to the hospital.

The 30-year-old actress, activist and producer reportedly experienced complications from her endomentriosis shortly after arriving on the red carpet at the Metropolitan Musuem of Art, according to People Magazine.

Elite Daily reached out to Dunham and a rep for the actress had no comment at this time.

According to People, a source claims the star is now at home and "taking some much needed time to rest."

After the Met Gala, Lena Dunham went to Instagram to thank fashion designer Elizabeth Kennedy for creating her wonderful gown.

She captioned one of the photos,

Thank you, Elizabeth Kennedy, for making me feel so embodied in this sensual tablecloth of a gown. Commes Des Garçons has always been for the creature who dares to be different, who needs clothing to be more than a way to telegraph wealth or culturally imposed super-sexuality. Now THAT is a theme I can get behind. Much love to @voguemagazine for bringing so much power and passion to the Met, which has always been church to me. It's easy to forget amidst the glitz just how much good this night does, raising millions to preserve essential artifacts and making sure style really is for everyone. Can I get an amen?

The theme of the night was based on the Costume Institute's “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between” exhibit.

Dunham walked the carpet with Jenni Konner and both women looked stunning wearing matching ensembles.

The star also pointed out to her Instagram followers that she inadvertently coordinated with singer Joe Jonas, as well.

Looking good, you two!
