David Fincher, the director of The Social Network shares some interesting thoughts about the story told in the movie – the founding of Facebook. 

In a press conference following a screening of the film in New York, Fincher lets loose on his thoughts about how the situation among Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin and Sean Parker went down. 

Fincher says calling the Mark Zuckerberg character an "asshole" is a "reductive and overly-simplistic" way of putting it. 

Screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, Fincher, and the actors portraying those characters talk about their Facebook experience (or lack thereof). Andrew Garfield, who plays Saverin, called his Facebook experience negative "like it is for most people".

Justin Timberlake, who plays Parker, says he doesn’t have time to look at pictures of his friends.
