Don't ever say Charlie Sheen's not the charitable type -- because he recently cut Lindsay Lohan a $100,000 check to cover the actress' six-figure tax bill ... all out of the goodness of his heart ... sources tell TMZ.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us she and Charlie became close pals while on the set of "Scary Movie 5" back in September -- spending a lot of time together both on and off the set.

During their bonding period, we're told Lindsay and Charlie talked about everything -- and at one point, Lindsay mentioned her ongoing tax problems.

We're told Charlie offered to cut her a check then and there to get the IRS off her tail, but Lindsay refused.

Fast forward to last week -- sources close to Lindsay tell TMZ, Lindsay's biz manager received a check from Charlie for $100,000.

We're told Lindsay was blown away by Charlie's generosity -- and immediately applied the money to her outstanding tax bill.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay allegedly owed Uncle Sam $233,904 in unpaid taxes for 2009 and 2010 -- but thanks to Charlie, that number's nearly been cut in half.

As we reported, Lindsay's slated to earn over $2 MILLION by the end of this year -- but who knows where that's going.

@ Luv, did you watch the view? Did they mention how bad Lying Lindsay was?


On Good Day New York, it was like they couldn't or didnt want to talk about it. (lawsuit)

Dave Price did override Rosanna and did say that it was awful, and all you needed was 15 mins. before you changed the channel

Oh wow, now the Daily Buzz just said on national TV that Charlie's donation was payment for services rendered, not generosity.


She is being called a prostitute on national TV now!


Lindsay needs to lay really low for the next decade or two.

Lindsay Lohan is said to be upset by criticism of "Liz & Dick."


Friends say Lindsay Lohan wasn't prepared for the harsh criticism of her Lifetime movie "Liz & Dick." And instead of providing the career comeback the troubled star expected, her performance has left many wondering if she will ever be taken seriously as an actress again.

“Lindsay is devastated by the response to the film,” a close friend of the actress tells The Huffington Post. “She has got used to all the negative press around her personal life but this is the first time she has experienced it about her work. No matter how bad things were going for her personally, everyone would always agree that she was a great actress.”

The Hollywood Reporter compared the Lifetime drama to a "Saturday Night Live" skit. The New York Times accused the actress of “sleepwalking through scenes,” while Entertainment Weekly made fun of Lohan’s “frozen face” and “blank stare.”

“Lindsay has already read her own press,” one insider tells me. “She knew the script wasn't strong but thought she would bring the role of Elizabeth to life. This is particularly heartbreaking as her acting was the only thing in her life that she knew was real. Now she is doubting that, too.”

However, not everyone agrees. Her dad, Michael Lohan, thought his daughter's performance proved once again that she is right up there with Meryl Streep.

“Due to the content, I had to step away from a lot of the scenes, but regardless of what some of these so-called critics, who don't have an ounce of talent in their bones say, Lindsay proved that she is an amazing actress. This was a different role for her at a difficult time of her life,” Michael tells The Huffington Post. “She still has what it takes to be the Lindsay Lohan that is one of Hollywood’s top actresses.”

Lindsay and her dad have one last hope in turning this perceived disaster around, as nothing matters more in television than the ratings, which have not been released yet.

“Everyone wants to make great TV but ultimately what determines if a show is a success is the ratings,” the Media Masters' Amy Rosenblum tells The Huffington Post. “Ironically, if a show finds a huge audience then it doesn't matter what the reviews or what the media elites think.”

Lifetime and Lindsay’s spokesperson did not respond to calls for comment.

On Twitter Sunday night, it seemed like there was only one topic to talk about: "Liz & Dick."

The Lifetime movie starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor made its debut and celebrities, journalists and all Twitter users snarked -- in 140 characters or less -- about what was intended to be Lohan's comeback role.

Prior to the Sunday premiere of "Liz & Dick" on Lifetime, reviews were far less than favorable. HuffPost TV's own Maureen Ryan called "Liz & Dick" "cheap-looking [and] exploitative"; Alessandra Stanley of "The New York Times" referred to the dialogue as "laughable"; "Reuter's" Tim Molloy said it was "redundant and boring in a way no star could save"; "The Hollywood Reporter's" Tim Goodman called it "spectacularly bad"; and Matt Roush of TV Guide said "you'll find more exciting chemistry in a high-school lab" than between Lohan and her Richard Burton, Grant Bowler.

But what did viewers, other journalists and celebrities have to say about "Liz & Dick"? From mocking Lohan's inconsistent accent to comparing the movie to sitting through Roseanne Barr's notorious national anthem (and some arguably worse things), check out 100 scathing tweets below.

STEAK FACTORY    

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

I broke down and decided to view one of the clips over to the CeleBitchy.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!

One scene, and guess what it was? ElizaLinds, gobbling about 20 Adderall and chugging straight from a bottle of cheap vodka. Upon closer inspection, you might realize that that scene was shot IN THE CHATEAU. Yep. That is absolutely one of their stinky rooms. It's very likely that footage was shot a year ago - when Linds was still allowed to live there. It's her room - might as well have been filmed/taped well before this stupid movie was even in production!

"Hmmmmm.... we need a shot of Linds getting totally hammered. Oh yeah... get that iPhone footage that Linds' "good friend" took in 2010. Talk about efficiency.....

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Lindsay has a lot of very exciting projects that she is being offered and she is truly committed to getting her life back on track," a source close to the actress tells RadarOnline.com.

MAXIMUM LOL!!!!! So Lindsay is not in Gotti. AAAHHHH, but what other big screen roles does she have??? She's headed for the big screen and NOT jail. This FACT is very upsetting to haters. I'll bet $$$ you don't want to believe she has movie deals lined up. Who will be the first clown to say it's BS from Honig or Dina? Haters are so ridiculous and delusional and terrified of a Lindsay Lohan comeback that you actually think the Woody Allen dinner was BS and Lindsay was forcing herself on him and he didn't want to be bothered and she followed him out of the restaurant for a photo-op to make it look like they were together. Are you clowns actually serious about this? Will you grow up for fk sake!!!

But the question with Lindsay h
as never been her acting skill which people sometimes forget, nor her range or her ability to apprehend the truth of a role. It has always been about a lifestyle that has overwhelmed her professional experiences and interrupted a career that could so easily take her wherever she wants to go.

Who's been saying this for two(2) years??? I'll bet you'll never guess.
