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 $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 US government more than $200,000 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.

Lohan's latest performance as late Hollywood screen legend Elizabeth Taylor did not go so well. Her role in the TV movie Liz & Dick was slammed by critics and largely ridiculed on Twitter. Cable TV channel Lifetime said on Monday that a modest 3.5 million Americans watched the film at the weekend.

Lohan and Sheen's hard partying and off-screen antics have made them tabloid favourites.

Lohan, 26, has been mired in legal and financial troubles and since 2007. Sheen, 47, once the highest-earning actor on television, was infamously fired from CBS comedy Two and a Half Men in 2011 after making derogatory comments about the show's creator, Chuck Lorre.

During that time Sheen gripped the public in a meltdown of drug use, erratic behavior and Internet soliloquies.

Sheen has cleaned up his image in recent months while starring in "Anger Management" on cable television channel FX.
