‘Social Network’ Winklevoss twins not offended by onscreen portrayal
HollywoodNews.com: At the Harvard Club party for “The Social Network” in New York City, the real-life Winklevoss twins, Cameron and Tyler, weren’t put off by their portrayal in the film.
Played respectively by Armie Hammer and Josh Pence, the Winklevoss’ sued Mark Zuckerberg over his theft of their Facebook program. It’s no secret that both Zuckerberg and Facebook consigliere Sean Parker are ticked off by the way they have been painted in David Fincher’s much praised masterpiece on the birth of the social network.
“We conducted ourselves appropriately, so we weren’t concerned,” said Cameron Winklevoss about his portrayal on the big-screen.
Per Page Six, there was only one character that Fincher and screenwriter Aaron Sorkin didn’t get right in their opinion, and that was White House economic advisor Larry Summers.
The twins had approached Summers for help in their lawsuit against Zuckerberg when he was president of Harvard.
“Let’s just say he isn’t the most diplomatic person,” Cameron said Summers, “We went in there feeling bad and coming out much worse.”
Currently, Rotten Tomatoes has counted 17 reviews for “Social Network” all of which are 100% fresh.
Pete Hammond writing for Box Office magazine exclaims, “As socially significant to this generation as films like ‘Network,’ ‘All The President’s Men’ and ‘The Graduate’ were in their own time.”
