British actress Alex Kingston, best known for playing Dr Elizabeth Corday on hospital drama ER, has said that she's considering undergoing more cosmetic surgery in an effort to improve her chances of winning parts in Hollywood.The 46-year-old, who played Dr Corday in 160 episodes of ER from 1997 to 2004, has admitted to having eye bag removal surgery (blepharoplasty) in the past. Now she says that she's hoping to have more plastic surgery in a bid to look younger. She said: "I look at myself in the mirror and I can see that I am going to go jowly soon. I was talking to a make-up artist recently who said everyone has had work done. They are starting as young as 28. "I'll go for auditions to play professional women with teenage kids, and they'll say, 'You're absolutely what we want, but we're going to go a little younger.'" Kingston used to be married to acclaimed British actor Ralph Fiennes. However, she admits that her current husband - German journalist Florian Haertel - wouldn't necessarily approve of her recent decision. She said: "[He] would be angry if I did anything else." Since beginning in 1994, ER has become one of the most popular medical dramas in television history. The last episode ever of the series was screened in April in the United States, and is due to air in the UK at the end of May. Kingston isn't the only star of ER to have undergone cosmetic surgery either. Hollywood superstar George Clooney, who first rose to prominence on the show, also admitted to having eyelid surgery in 2007.
