Although producer Scott Rudin was hesitant about leaving a scene of hard core pAARtying in The Social Network because it depicts real people, the full scene isn't going anywhere.
Rudin has let certain Facebook execs read the script and have accommodated certain requests to change dialogue, but nothing major. It was also considered whether to cut out a scene with Napster co-founder, Sean Parker, who delivered a speech at a partly while two girls offered cocaine off their bare breasts.
Justin Timberlake plays Parker in the film and was a well known confidant of Mark Zuckerberg, but left the company in 2005 after a cocaine-related arrest. The scene in the film is not based on real events.
Facebook rep, Larry Yu, said:
“Maybe the movie is a sign that Facebook has become meaningful to people, even if the movie is fiction. What the movie may or may not contain is not what we’re focused on. What matters more is building a useful, innovative service that people enjoy using to connect and share.”
Ha. And all anyone cares about is all the shiz they got into!
