Aaron Sorkin: Mark Zuckerberg Grew Up to Be a Good Man

Sorkin has already expressed sympathy for Zuckerberg, but he's taking it even further. Remember when Social Network's Erica called Social Network's Zuckerberg an asshole? It's a pretty pivotal moment in the film. Some might say it even presents one of the film's driving questions. But several accolades later, at the Critics' Choice Awards, Sorkin said: “Rooney Mara’s character [Erica] was wrong. [Zuckerberg] grew up to be a leader and altruist to whom we owe a debt of gratitude.” Oh, okay then. Not an asshole. Mystery solved. [Race/HR]
