(CBS News) "Glee" star Amber Riley says she's fine after fainting on the red carpet on Tuesday.

The actress, who was attending a screening of "Glee" held by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences in Los Angeles, collapsed while doing interviews with multiple media outlets, E! reports.

Riley was able to attend the panel presentation with other members of the show's cast and producers, E! added. After the event, she took to her Twitter account to explain what happened.

"Hey guys, I'm okay," she wrote. "I got a little dizzy from all the photog flashes! You'd think I's be used to it by now, still a red carpet amateur I guess. Gonna get checked out but I feel fine. Thank you for all the concern and well wishes."

Riley added, "I'd also like to thank the photographers for being so professional and not taking photos of me on the ground. I truly truly appreciate it. Could have been super embarrassing."
