LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen found a kindred spirit in actress Lindsay Lohan when they worked on the set of Scary Movie 5 and gave the actress US$100,000 to pay off some of her overdue taxes.

Sheen's camp on Monday confirmed that the Anger Management star gave the cash gift to the in-and-out-of-trouble Lohan who reportedly owes the U.S. government more than $200,000 (S$244,000) in unpaid taxes for 2009 and 2010.

"Charlie has a long history of helping out his friends in many ways and this is just another example of that," Sheen's publicist Larry Solters said in a statement.

Sheen and Lohan worked earlier this year on the horror spoof Scary Movie 5 which is scheduled for an April 2013 release.
