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