For the tenth anniversary of ’s very first episode, we reminisced with co-creators Schwartz and Savage and executive producer Joshua Safran about the things that got left on the cutting-room floor (a box of giant dildos), that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump cameo, the casting that could have been (Jennifer Lawrence), and the doll Blake Lively was sending pictures of to her then-boyfriend Leonardo Di Caprio.
