How To: 8 Ways to Cry on the Spot

8 Ways to Cry on the Spot

Are you an aspiring actor with a crying scene in a play? Or are you a shameless manipulator who will need some cheap sympathy from the jury during a court case? You never know when the ability to shed fake tears will come in handy.

If you need to pop a few tear drops for a commercial shoot or quick scene, you can always drop a few eye drops or dab a little mentholated lip balm beneath your eyes. If you need to shed some tears fast without obvious props or smelling like raw onions, simply keep your eyes open for as long as possible and allow for your tear ducts to automatically start watering to moisturize your exposed eyeballs.

Want to be really convincing? Tap into your most painful emotional memories to really get the waterworks going. If you are lucky to not have too many painful memories, tap into your imagination to make up something.

I used to be able to do this no problem before I hit puberty.
