Charlie Sheen

$100K to Cover Tax Debt

EXCLUSIVE

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.

I guess reality is setting in for the SLAG now!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"Liz & Dick" is now upon us, and the movie is not getting the kind of glowing reviews that Lindsay Lohan had hoped for. In fact, Lifetime's take on Elizabeth Taylor's life has gotten negative reviews from both critics and Zap2it fans, and one of the main complaints leveled at the project was Lohan's bad acting.

The 26-year-old allegedly takes that news as a major blow to her confidence, especially considering she was hoping "Liz & Dick" would help her bounce back on the Hollywood scene. A friend close to Lohan claims the actress is "devastated" by how much many people didn't like her movie.

"Lindsay is devastated by the response to the film," the source 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."

During an interview prior to "Liz & Dick's" premiere, Lohan admitted that she is refocusing on her acting career because it's "safer that way." She said that her portrayal of Taylor in "Liz & Dick" was the first step of that plan.

"I hope that my love for acting shows through and that people really see that, and I hope that they enjoy the portrayal. I did the best that I could," she told "Good Morning America." "I'm in a great place. I just want to move forward. Keep working."

Lindsay can't even do 2 weeks of filming without sleeping until noon and hitting cars. How can she be trusted with a sitcom series?

"Liz & Dick" -- The Moments That Made Us Laugh Out Loud

After a disastrous shoot and some really bad reviews, "Liz & Dick" finally premiered last night -- and it was great in all the worst ways.

Let's put it this way: The Lifetime movie won't be racking up any Emmy Awards.

While the costume department was on-point, the rest of the made-for-TV movie was a mess -- with Lindsay Lohan's performance as the late, great Elizabeth Taylor reaching laughable heights.

With her inconsistent accent and signature raspy voice, it became hard to watch the flick without seeing anyone other than Lindsay. Did anyone buy her as Liz for more than a few fleeting moments?

That being said, the movie was definitely entertaining ... in a "Mommie Dearest"/"Showgirls"-kinda way.

Check out some of the moments that made us laugh out loud in the video above.

And if you missed the main event on Sunday, don't worry -- "Liz & Dick" airs again tonight at 8pm on Lifetime.

B-B-B-But.... what about all that audible gasping????

Funny, I didn't see one review mention that "Lohan was so much like Liz Taylor, there was an audible gasp when she appeared on screen".

There are no enablers on here because she gave them nothing to defend. That being said, I'm sure they are racking their below avg. I.Q. brains and will come up with some crock. They'll run with a sitcom being the next 'project'. Anything they see online they run with it. "Sitcom?" OK I'll try that one out on the haters.
