Sean Parker would like you to know that he has the utmost respect for David Fincher, and that his latest film, The Social Network, is a masterwork of beautiful cinematography and very timely. He also wants you to know that it's a complete work of fiction.

Speaking at the Digital-Life-Design (DLD) conference in Germany, the Napster co-founder spoke about his feelings on the character that "happens to have his name" that Aaron Sorkin and David Fincher developed for the movie. While he didn't mind being portrayed as a young, rich playboy, he did have some hang-ups about being portrayed as a rude, morally reprehensible human being.

We can see why dude would be salty about being portrayed as a manic drug addict and all-around asshole, but we here at Complex loved his character. He had our favorite line in the whole movie:

Sean Parker: You think you know me, don't you?
Eduardo Saverin: I've read enough.
Sean Parker: You know how much I've read about you?
Sean Parker: Nothing...
