Tori Spelling took it on chin, sharing an up-close video of the stitches she received after injuring herself during a fainting spell.

“So I had a little incident the other day,” she began during the April 16 episode of her podcast, misSpelling.

Tilting her chin up in a video shared on Instagram, the Beverly Hills, 90210 alum showed off a black line of stitches under her chin.

“Can you see this?” she asked. “I have six stitches here. I feel super proud.”

“I haven’t had stitches since the parrot bit me in the nose in the '90s,” Spelling said, before pausing and whispering, “That’s a whole other story. We’ll save that one.”

Spelling, 50, went on to share what led to her receiving stitches. “I fainted the other night,” she explained, adding that this was the second time she’s fainted in recent months.

“This time, I fell straight forward, and yes, split my chin open,” she said.

“They sewed me up. I wish I had been a little more coherent, I would have been like, ‘Oh, this is a great area,’ " she said, rubbing her chin and jawline.

“‘Can you just make it a little tighter?’ " Spelling quipped, pulling the skin back on her jaw.

“For all the plastic surgery people think I’ve had, and I have not had, like, ‘Damn.’ Just like, tighten it up. But I wasn’t thinking straight.”

The podcast host also shared that she was most likely "completely dehydrated," adding, "I think, perhaps, me not drinking water, subconsciously is a form of self sabotage."

She also noted in her Instagram post that low iron was a contributing factor in her most recent fainting spell. She captioned the video, "❤️🧠👌🏼… low iron 🥩🙋🏼‍♀️."

It’s not the first time Spelling has been forthcoming about her appearance on her podcast; the actress recently shared that took Mounjaro for weight loss following the birth of her fifth child, son Beau, back in 2017.

“I couldn’t lose the weight,” she explained. “At my heaviest, I was 120 lbs. my entire life. And after Beau, I was 160 lbs.”

Mounjaro is similar to Ozempic and Wegovy — brand names for semaglutide — which work in the brain to impact satiety, and have been trending in Hollywood circles for weight loss.
