Image of Mark Zuckerberg Explains Why He Wears The Same T-Shirt and Hoodie Every Day

Why does Facebook owner, Mark Zuckerberg, who is one of the world’s richest men, wear the same grey-coloured style of t-shirt every single day and how did Hollywood hurt him in the movie Social Network?

Zuckerberg gave answers in a Q & A session with  The Telegraph

Why he wears the same T-shirt every single day…

He revealed that for him, wondering what to wear every morning or what to eat breakfast would be a waste of valuable time that he could be using to look after the world’s largest social network.

Mr Zuckerberg said he owns multiple versions of the same T-shirt, as clothing, along with breakfast, is a "silly" decision he doesn't want to spend too long making. He is also too busy looking after the world's largest social network.

"I really want to clear my life so that I have to make as few decisions as possible about anything except how to best serve this community.

"I'm in this really lucky position where I get to wake up every day and help serve more than 1bn people, and I feel like I'm not doing my job if I spend any of my energy on things that are silly or frivolous about my life, so that way I can dedicate all of my energy towards just building the best products and services."

How Hollywood hurt him

Facebook took a large leap into the mainstream in 2010, when a Hollywood film depicted how Mr Zuckerberg, played by Jesse Eisenberg, created the social network while studying at Harvard.

The Social Network suggested Mr Zuckerberg only created Facebook to attract women following a break-up. The tech tycoon admitted the film makers had "made up" a lot of the events in the film and this had hurt him.

"I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about that movie in a while. I kind of blocked that one out," he said.

"I think the reality is that writing code and then building a product and building a company is not a glamorous enough thing to make a movie about, so you can imagine that a lot of this stuff they had to embellish or make up.

"They went out of their way in the movie to try to get some interesting details correct like the design of the office, but on the overarching plot... they just kind of made up a bunch of stuff that I found kind of hurtful.

"[I met] the guy who played me in the movie [Eisenberg]. I tried to be nice."

A key part of the film he pointed to as being factually incorrect was the suggestion he was single while creating Facebook. Mr Zuckerberg said he had been dating his now-wife, Priscilla Chan, at the time.

"There were pretty glaring things that were just made up about the movie that made it pretty hard to take seriously," he said.
