How do you act at a job interview if you're not a naturally cheery person?

I'm having a hell of a time finding a job. I've been looking since I turned 19, and I'm 22 now. I've been to a few interviews, but have never been hired. I've acted as upbeat and cheery as possible, but my reviews have been pretty much, "You seem too low energy and quiet." How does one act upbeat when your natural attitude is pessimistic and you're usually depressed? I want to be upbeat, but I don't want them to know it's fake.
