Hardly anyone needs to cry on cue anymore. It's a skill that comes easily to some actors, but if it doesn't for you, you dont' need to worry. Even Oscar(r)-winning actress Helen Hunt says she's terrible at it. When she has to cry on-screen, it takes her time to prepare alone in a room before she can work up the emotion.
