Mark Zuckerberg Calls 'The Social Network' Inaccurate [VIDEO]

In the new film The Social Network, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's life is plastered up on the big screen in all its ambition and ugliness. The only problem, of course, is the young millionaire says it's totally inaccurate.

Speaking to a group of students at Stanford University on Saturday, Zuckerberg said the creators of The Social Network misunderstood the reason Facebook was created in the first place.
"The thing that I think is actually most thematically interesting that they got wrong is the whole framing of the movie," He said. "They frame it as if the whole reason for making Facebook and building something was because I wanted to get girls."
Taking a shot at Hollywood, Zuck added that today's filmmakers "just can't seem to wrap their heads around the idea that somebody might build something because they like building things."

Starring Jessie Eisenberg as the young Facebook creator and Justin Timberlake as Napster co-founder Sean Parker, The Social Network follows Zuckerberg during his tumultuous years at Harvard. That includes lots of women, intrigue and the creation of the most popular website in the world.
But Zucerberg himself calls the film mostly inaccurate. I say mostly because apparently they did get one thing right.
"It's interesting what stuff they focused on getting right," Zuckerberg said. "Every single shirt and fleece that I had in that movie is actually a shirt or fleece that I own."
