Rebecca Budig graduated from the Cincinnati School of the Performing Arts and later went on to major in zoology at Miami University in Ohio. Her indecision on actually wanting to be an actress damned her into being stuck in soap opera hell for the rest of her life, with no animals.
Rebecca Budig's first acting job was in Aerosmith's music video Living on the Edge, not to be mistaken with the great video featuring Liv Tyler and Alicia Siverstone making out. She later had a cameo role as a teenage girl saved by Chris O'Donnell's character, Robin, in Batman Forever and she can confirm that Batman and Robin are lovers.
In 1995, she auditioned for the role of Kelsey Jefferson on All My Children, but received an offer from Guiding Light, where she began her three-year stint as Michelle Bauer. She tried to get out of soaps, starring in a few mediocre to poor movies including: Captain Nuke and the Bomber Boys (not a porn) and God's Lonely Man, but was hauled back to the soaps, where she landed her most famous role as the spoiled, rich girl-turned-makeup company executive Greenlee Smythe on All My Children. The role of Greenlee Symthe was supposed to last for only three months, but executives enjoyed her so much, she was offered a three-year contract.
Budig was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (Soap Opera) in 2001 and again in 2003. Her onscreen pairing with Duhamel earned them a Daytime Emmy Award nomination as well, for America's Favorite Couple in 2002. In 2003, Budig won a Soap Opera Digest Award for Outstanding Younger Lead Actress in her role as Greenlee Smythe.
