The Real Cameron Winklevoss Says 'The Social Network' Is 'Nonfiction'

Movie News

First off, let's just say it--in the movie, the Winklevoss are way better looking than in life.  They should be sending the producers a $64 million check for how well they look.  And apparently, they've got that kind of money.

Anyway, we love a good geek to chic, nerd-next-door who makes it big, story. That's why Mark Zuckerberg, cofounder and CEO of Facebook, has been largely perceived as a likable, brilliant young entrepreneur.

But today's nationwide release of 'The Social Network' is very likely to change our perception of our programming pal, Mark Z. As we all know from the dramatized trailers and media buzz, 'The Social Network' shows a darker, backstabbing Facebook founder than the down to earth, brilliant billionaire we've grown to love.

In the movie, golden boys Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, along with their friend Divya Narendra, are royally screwed over by socially awkward Mark Zuckerberg when he steals their idea for a Harvard-based social networking site.

The real Cameron Winklevoss, who's played by Armie Hammer in the movie, told me confidently, "The film is nonfiction. I think [the creators] David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin did a great job getting their facts right."

And there you have it, Zuck.  Now, go and give another $100 million to charity, because after this movie, you seriously need to do so to lift your profile.
