In the film, Alicia's character is afraid of marriage. Alicia believes that June has a perfect man in her life, but she constantly pushes him away, worried that she will be hurt again. In thinking about her character's relationship, Alicia believes she understands what June was going through.

"Not until recently have I kind of come to terms more that—marriage is a beautiful, beautiful thing," she says. "I think marriage takes work and it's commitment and it's equality and it's tough, but I don't think it's impossible. But I do understand why June felt so scared about it."
