http://www.thedailytruffle.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/Cameron-Winklevoss-and-Tyler-Winklevoss1.jpgDOUBLE TAKE: If you saw The Social Network, one of this year’s 10 Oscar nominees for best picture, then you know the story of the Winklevoss twins who were portrayed by Armie Hammer in the film.

Tyler Winklevoss and Cameron Winklevoss were classmates at Harvard with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and sued him for $140 million claiming he stole their idea for a social networking site they called HarvardConnection (later renamed ConnectU).

They got a multi-million settlement but are now pursuing more money. I watched the handsome 29-year-old brothers on Piers Morgan’s CNN show over the weekend and they claim much more evidence has come to light since they entered into their settlement with Zuckerberg so this story is far from over.

The brothers have not been spending all their time in litigation however. They were members of the Varsity Crew Team at Harvard and competed in the men’s pair rowing event at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.

So what did they think of Armie Hammer’s portrayal of them?

“He definitely, I thought, captured two distinct personalities,” Cameron told Morgan.

Added Tyler: “There was a relief when it was over that our story was told, and we were portrayed, what we believe was a positive light. … We don’t think the story is fully told yet.”
