"I think that they got every single T-shirt that they had the Mark Zuckerberg character wearing right. And they got sandals right and all that," he added.

"But I mean, there are hugely basic things that they got wrong, too. They made it seem like my whole motivation for building Facebook was so I could get girls," he said.

He said the movie makes 'it seem like this whole lawsuit is such a huge part of Facebook's history' but "I've probably spent less than two weeks of my time worried about this lawsuit at all".

'60 Minutes' also featured an interview with the Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, the Harvard University classmates who accused Zuckerberg of stealing their idea.

The twins had reached a reported 65 million dollars settlement with Facebook, but are now claiming they were misled about the value of the company.

Speaking of the Winklevoss twins, Zuckerberg said, "it's hard for me to fully wrap my head around where they're coming from on this."

"You know, early on, they had an idea that was completely separate from Facebook. It was a dating site for Harvard. And I agreed to help them out with it," he added.

He also revealed that he once turned down an offer from Yahoo! to buy Facebook for 1 billion dollars and made it clear he is in no hurry to take the company public.
