Mark Zuckerberg Calls 'Social Network' 'Hurtful' and 'Made Up'

Four years after the release of David Fincher's 'The Social Network', Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is talking about how the film compared to reality.

"Wow, I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about that movie in a while," Zuckerberg admitted. "I kinda blocked that one out. It was a very interesting experience to watch a movie that was supposedly about my life... supposedly."

"The reality is that writing code and building a product and then building a company actually is not a glamorous enough thing to make a movie about," he said at a Q&A session.

"If they were really making a movie, it would've been of me sitting at a computer, coding for two hours straight, which probably would have not been that good of a movie and these guys, I think, want to win awards and sell tickets.

"They went out of their way in the movie to try to get some interesting details correct, like the design of the office, but on the overarching plot, in terms of why we're building Facebook to help connect the world, or how we did it, they just kind of made up a bunch of stuff that I found kind of hurtful," Zuckerberg said.

"I take our mission really seriously, and we're here not primarily to just build a company, but to help connect the world. The thing that I found the most interesting about the movie, was that they kind of made up this whole plot line about how I somehow decided to create Facebook to, I think, attract girls."

"One important piece of context is, the woman who I'm married to, who I've been dating for more than 10 years, I've known for more than 10 years, I was actually dating her before I even started Facebook. If somehow I was trying to create Facebook to find more women, that probably would not have gone over too well in my relationship, and I probably would not still be married to her today."

'The Social Network' earned $225 million worldwide and was nominated for eight Academy Awards and six Golden Globes.
