Whiplash is a movie about a drummer (played by Miles Teller) whose singular focus is to be the best at what he does. He’s exceptionally talented. He’s exceptionally driven. And he’s exceptionally difficult to be around, especially if you’re the woman he’s dating. (Though not as impossible to be around as his abusive instructor, played by J.K. Simmons). Cosmopolitan.com spoke to Teller at last night’s Gotham Independent Film Awards, at which he was up for Best Actor, about how one might go about dating a man like his character.

In Whiplash, your character is kind of terrible to the girl he’s dating. He dumps her saying that she is going to become needy and he doesn’t have time for that. Do you think really talented men are awful to date?
I don’t know. You’d have to ask my girlfriend. She would probably agree with the latter part of that, yeah.

Really?
I don’t know. For me, I’m at a point — I think my 20s is the time where I should be selfish, you know? Because it’s a time to invest in yourself and go for [your] passions. For me, once [you] have kids and stuff, you take a step back. Your kids come before you, your wife comes before you, so I think [your 20s] is a valuable time to go after things, and, you know, listen to yourself.

So do you think in real life you’re not easy to date?
I think I’m a wonderful companion. [Laughs.]

What should a woman do if she’s dating a “genius”? Run the other way?
Ask my girlfriend. [Laughs.]

What do you think your girlfriend would say?
Patience. And lots of laughter.

Whiplash is jam-packed with high notes and drumroll-worthy moments, but Miles Teller has a favorite scene: “When J.K. Simmons slaps me in the face, because he hits like a girl!” he joked to The Hollywood Reporter on Sunday night at its New York Film Festival premiere. The particular moment, which has the arts professor testing the aspiring jazz drummer’s abilities with tempo, is the audience’s first introduction to the extent of Simmons’ berating in the band room. It wasn’t an emotional stretch for Simmons, who joked on the red carpet that he got so angry after “just driving to work and bottling up the road rage in L.A.”

With Sony Pictures Classics co-presidents Michael Barker and Tom Bernard in attendance, Chazelle introduced the film alongside producers Jason Blum, Helen Estabrook, Couper Samuelson, David Lancaster, Nicholas Britell and composer Justin Hurwitz. After a standing ovation from the audience inside Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, Chazelle, Teller and Simmons elaborated on the 19-day shoot during a post-screening Q&A (with Ethan Hawke stopping in for a listen).

Repeating some of his explanations from his chat with the press, the writer-director first recounted how the film was inspired by his high-school jazz band experience. “It was my life for a few years and I still have nightmares about it,” he laughed, recalling with a bit of a bias, “conductors tend to have a special thing against drummers because it seems to be less demanding than instruments that actually play notes, and everyone thinks they can do it. … And yet, the entire band falls apart without one, and a bad drummer sticks out like a sore thumb.”

One of the best films in competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival is Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher, which tracks the story of a destructive mentorship by inverting the rules of a well-worn subgenre. In the case of Miller’s film it was the underdog sports movie, and in Damien Chazelle’s blistering Directors Fortnight entry Whiplash, it’s the inspirational teacher movie.

JK Simmons’s jazz maestro Terence Fletcher is, without doubt, an inspirational teacher. He’s revered as one of the best instructors at the prestigious Shaffer Conservatory of Music, and students dream of earning a place in his studio band. He just also happens to be a borderline sociopath, whose methods for fostering talent include subjecting his students to what can only be described as psychological warfare, from verbal abuse all the way through to subtle emotional manipulation.
