[1] Carolyn Soutar, The Real Nureyev (2004), pages 132-35. "Peter Martins used to say that all Rudi needed after a performance was a steak and a boy." Violette Verdy continues, "He even made a pass at my partner at the time, Mahôt. It was hysterical. He was talking to Rudolf and Rudolf told him to follow him into the bathroom. And, of course, Rudi was wearing only a towel and let it drop to the ground. I was in the other room, and Mahôt came back to tell me that he had 'never seen anything so big.' Mahôt told Rudi that it really wasn't for him and Rudolf just said that if he changed his mind to let him know."
