Winklevoss Brothers: Mark Zuckerberg's Portrayal in 'The Social Network' Was 'Generous' (VIDEO)

The Winklevoss brothers, who allege Mark Zuckerberg stole their idea for Facebook, stopped by 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9 PM ET on CNN), where they discussed their ongoing legal campaign against Zuckerberg, who's already paid the pair $65 million through a mediated settlement.

Morgan asked the twins how accurately Zuckerberg was portrayed in movie 'The Social Network,' noting their former Harvard classmate and business partner came off as a bit odd.

"It's generous," Cameron Winklevoss said of Zuckerberg's portrayal, as his brother nodded.

Cameron explained that, unlike the Zuckerberg character in the movie, the real Zuckerberg doesn't have any inner turmoil concerning his cutthroat (and the Winklevoss's would say illegal) business dealings.

"We're talking about a kind of amoral machine that came along and pillaged you of your idea and money?" Morgan proposed.

"That's kind of close to it," Tyler Winklevoss agreed.

Hey, if you're going to get pillaged by an amoral machine, it might as well be by one who makes so much money off his plunder he's able to effortlessly toss ten of millions back your way.

They didn't place at the 2008 Summer Olympics. They won't do porn. What else is there left for them?
