In Perry's movie, Janet plays a successful psychologist whose marriage begins to unravel. Her portrayal, she said, was fueled in no small part by the traumatic news of her brother's passing.

Janet also said she received support from many people, but Perry helped her cope with her loss the most. "They were very supportive, and especially Tyler, because he actually stopped production and came to the service and was with me and was calling me on a daily basis," she said. "He was just so there for me in every way."
