Mark Zuckerberg takes Facebook staff to see "Social Network"
Friday 08 October 2010
Mark Zuckerberg ended up seeing "The Social Network" after all.
"To celebrate a period of intense activity at Facebook, we decided to go to the movies. We thought this particular movie might be amusing," the spokesperson said.
After the film, the group indulged in apple martinis, the same drink Jesse Eisenberg, who plays Zuckerberg, and Justin Timberlake (Napster's Sean Parker) drink in the Columbia Pictures film, wrote UsMagazine.com, which first reported the story.
Zuckerberg had said he wouldn't watch the movie, written by Aaron Sorkin and directed by David Fincher. But he called the film "fun" in an appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to promote his $100 million donation to New Jersey schools (announced the same day the flick premiered at the New York Film Festival).
On Thursday, the "Social Network" cast landed in London to promote their movie ahead of the Oscars and U.K. BAFTA Awards. There, Timberlake admitted he "would have kicked the door down" for a role in the movie.
He also described a run-in with Parker. (He's the only cast member to have met his real-life alter ego.)
"I was coming out of a bar. He was going into one in New York," Timberlake said. "At the time I hadn't landed the part, so it was a bit awkward because he'd read on the Internet I was going to do it. I had to sheepishly tell him I hadn't been told if I had it yet or not."
