Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that he wears the same gray T-shirt everyday to avoid wasting time in “things that are silly or frivolous”.

In his first public Q&A, Mr. Zuckerberg opened up about the movie where Jesse Eisenberg played him.

He said ‘The Social Network’, director David Fincher’s take on his college life, took many liberties in telling his story which he found “hurtful”.

“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. If they were really making a movie (of my life), it would have been of me sitting at a computer, coding for two hours straight, which probably would have not been that good of a movie,” Mr. Zuckerberg said.

The young businessman said the studio did get some interesting details like the design of the office correct but was not right in implicating that Mr. Zuckerberg created Facebook “to attract girls”.

“They just kind of made up a bunch of stuff that I found kind of hurtful,” he said.
