When asked how accurate the movie was by an audience member, the 30-year-old shared, "Wow, I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about that movie in a while. I kinda blocked that one out. It was a very interesting experience to watch a movie that was supposedly about my life…supposedly."
The billionaire went on to say, "I think 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. So you can imagine that a lot of the stuff they probably had to embellish and make up. If they were really making a movie, it would have been of me, sitting at a computer coding for two hours straight, which probably would have just not been that good of a movie and these guys, I think, want to win awards and sell tickets."
And while Zuckerberg does have some perspective about the movie-making process, he admitted he was less than pleased about certain parts of the David Fincher film.
"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," the tech CEO explained.
"I take our mission really seriously…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."
