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.

Fun fact: Other people are always driving her around in the movie because it's illegal for Lindsay Lohan to even fake drive. #lizanddick

delusional much LL?    

and to think lowhan thought she should have gotten 'black swan' over natalie portman.
talk about delusional !
time for the trainwreck to snap into reality.
lowhan thinks she's so gifted as an actress all she has to do is show up,forget preparing.
time to stop listening to monster mommy and accept the fact that she can't act !

The above post was misleading. #LizandDick was only the fourth most-watched movie Lifetime has aired this year, not in all networks. The below post is saying that Liz and Dick did not have great ratings:

The intense coverage of Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime's movie "Liz & Dick" didn't translate to huge ratings.

The movie, which aired Sunday (Nov. 25), still pulled in a solid 3.5 million viewers. But it was only the fourth most-watched movie Lifetime has aired this year, behind its "Steel Magnolias" remake (6.5 million), "Drew Peterson: Untouchable" (5.8 million) and "Abducted: The Carlina White Story" (3.5 million).

The demographic numbers for "Liz & Dick" were also in the OK-not-great range: The movie drew 1.3 million adults 25-54 and 1.3 million adults 18-49, with women making up the great majority of viewers in both demos.

Critics were, to say the least, not very kind to the movie or to Lohan and co-star Grant Bowler, who played Richard Burton. The movie was a trending topic on Twitter pretty much all of Sunday night, but the social-media snark didn't lead to bigger tune-in.

LOHAN DELIVERS RIVITING KUMBACK!

The Estonian Times today had the following to say about the Lindsay Lohan Performance in Liz and Dick:

“Not since the memorable performance of two talented girls has there been such a disappointing display of sheer classless, clueless, creepy and contemptible krap in a single cup of what someone thought was entertainment; Lindsay mailed in her role and made it almost laughable. Two Girls and a Cup is a far better piece of stagecraft than this Lohan piece of merde.”

Apparently, Two Girls and a Cup (Google to see it) has reached a far greater audience than will ever see Liz and Dick, sparing millions of potential viewers the horror of what Linds does to the character of Ms. Taylor.

The ET concluded: “Ms. Lohan has taken American Culture to a new and unimaginable low…!”

Fourth Place in a Lifetime movie channel.....LOL...that trqnslate to being beating out by SpongeBob Square Pants which I must say was a pretty good movie.....Yes I watched it it was either football, zombies or Lindsay Lohan or SpongeBob and SpongeBob comes in first every time........
That means that it Ranked right below the Sci Fi channels movies in rating....Franken Fish had more viewers I believe it go 5.2 million.....
She got beaten out by a Sponge ..!!! and cartoon Sponge.........Hell they should have put a black wig on him and he could have done a better job......
Bye the way folks if you are waiting for the enablers to come on sorry but they are all 4 of them past out laying around Lindsay's Hotel room and back in Merrick.....along with Lindsay....but she should be jerking awake any minute now and getting ready to go out and drink her dinner and celebrate her comeback !! .......
