Facebook's Zuckerberg Says 'Social Network' Hurt His Feelings

Facebook Inc. Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg said Thursday he found the portayal of himself in the 2010 film "The Social Network" to be "kind of hurtful" and not completely accurate. Speaking in a live-streamed Q&A session, Zuckerberg complained that "they made up this plot line about how I decided to create Facebook to attract girls," according to an account of the event on Mashable.com. Noting that he was dating his future wife, Priscilla Chan, when Facebook was founded, he said that creating the network "to find more women ... probably wouldn't have gone over well in my relationship with my wife," Mashable quoted him as saying. Zuckerberg also said that while the movie shows him drinking an "appletini" cocktail, he didn't even know what that drink was. The Mashable report added that the Q&A event "largely steered clear of controversial topics such as privacy and the use of personal data in advertising."
