JCC In general, do most actors/actresses produce natural tears?

    Most of them undrego cosmetic surgery to replace their natural tear ducts with lightly pressurized canisters of synthetic liquid. The wire trigger is run down to a point on the roof of their mouth that can be activated with their tongue. Why do you ask?

    "That Klingon ***** killed her father. Mark my word, she did not shed one bloody tear."

    "Hardly conclusive, Mr. Scott, since Klingons have no tear ducts."

    Some of them can go to a sad place before filming the scene, that allows them to make the tears.

    Others require ther assistance of the make up staff, to induce tears.

    You can usually tell when someone's actually crying (tears actually falling out of their eyes) and when they're just cutting back to someone who has one magic teardrop running down their cheek :p

    I was watching Goonies with audio commentary recently, and Jeff Cohen (Chunk) said that Richard Donner (director) told him to imagine that his mother had just died in order to get him to cry for the blender scene... true story.

    I can cry at will. :) But that's because I'm a psychopath.

    Yellow onions. Lots of yellow onions.

    EDIT -- And since the majority of Cajun food relies heavily on onion, this makes my kitchen adventures more tearjerking than the Titanic's string quartet.

    You've got the eyes of a serial killer, it's true.

    It's good to know that I should probably be careful of anyone who gets very suddenly friendly with me and looks like Michael C. Hall.

    It's can be difficult, but crying 'on cue' is doable if you're in the moment and think of the right triggers.

    Crying on cue is a very useful talent, not just for actors.

    Some use a kind of transparent lipstick which is put on under the eyes. The tears soon come a-streaming.

    It would be something nice to learn. The only problem is, I'm one of those people who get all blubbery when I cry. It's actually kinda gross. No one would use those takes.:p

    I can't cry anymore. I used up all my tears during the great Phantom Menace heartbreak of '99.

    Usually I do the insane gross crying as well. But a few weeks ago, I had the most epic crying moment. I was standing on the balcony above the academy awards, and turned around to someone who took my photo unknowingly, and it was all like


    BAM
    [image=http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_EvidBzQ_PMs/StVpzbbX-AI/AAAAAAAAA6o/QToSSt1ywNs/s400/NataliePortmanCriesCloser.jpg]




    And then they deleted the photo because it was too "sad". But it was so spot on minus being less hot.
