Facebook mogul Mark Zuckerberg has accused producers behind acclaimed movie The Social Network of hurting his feelings with their portrayal of him onscreen.
The tech entrepreneur was rumoured to be unhappy with the film, which depicted his creation of the hugely popular social networking website during his time at Harvard University, and company bosses demanded a raft of changes before its release.
Zuckerberg, who was played by Jesse Eisenberg in an Oscar-nominated performance, has now spoken candidly about his issues with the movie, insisting he felt disappointed with the way he was depicted.
Speaking during a question and answer session with fans, he said, “They just kind of made up a bunch of stuff that I found really hurtful. They made up this whole plot line about how I somehow decided to create Facebook to attract girls. The real story is a lot of hard work. If they were really making a movie (about the creation of Facebook)… it would be of me sitting there coding for two hours straight.”
