Mark Zuckerberg has criticised hit movie The Social Network for implying the reason he founded Facebook was because he'd been dumped by his girlfriend.
But he does say director David Fincher's acclaimed drama got the clothes right, down to "every single shirt or fleece I own."
The movie, written by The West Wing scribe Aaron Sorkin, tells the story of how Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg) turned the college social networking site into a multi-million dollar operation.
Zuckerberg objects to the “framing of the movie when the girl dumps me as the whole reason for making Facebook,” he says, as if he was building something to get girls or into some social institution.
“There’s a big disconnect about what we do in Silicon Valley. They can’t wrap their head around the idea that someone might build something because they like building things.”
