BABEWATCH: Divya Narendra, The Real-Life Indian Dude Who Wasn’t Played By An Indian Dude In ‘The Social Network’

October 12th, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Divya Narendra

Age: 28

Occupation: CEO and co-founder of SumZero, a professional networking site for investment banker-ish people, co-founder of Harvard Connection (later named ConnectU), and suer of Mark Zuckerberg

By now you know the name Divya Narendra, one of the founders of Harvard Connection/ConnectU who sued Mark Zuckerberg for stealing their idea for a social networking site. You know this because you’ve seen The Social Network, where Narendra is played by Max Minghella. Minghella isn’t Indian like Narendra, although he is of some Asian Persuasion (Minghella’s mother, a native of Hong Kong, is Scottish and Chinese). Still, this is kinda creepy, no?

What Narendra IRL and Narendra in The Social Network do have in common is that they’re both hot, in that Ivy League, elitist fuck-sorta way. (Although apparently, Narendra IRL comes from humbler origins.) And ladies, good news: Divya Narendra’s interested in women. We know that from stalking–what else?–his Facebook profile.

    Movie Winkelvii way hotter than IRL Winkelvii. IRL Divya, hotter than movie Divya. +1 to him, among other things, like getting $65 million from Mark Zuckerberg.

    You straight girls get all the best guys, us gays on the other hand only get that korean muscle boy in the still-unsigned-jersey-shore-ripoff “K-Town”… btw. how many years do y’all think it takes for him to master his “smoldering look”? I’d say he’s been practicing since high school…

  4. Jen says:

    @hahahachu Do you really think straight guys are the best? I feel the exact opposite. Although Divya, yes, he is fiiiine. And smoldering. Probably was practicing that look in junior high.
