Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen are two peas in a cracked out pod, so it’s only natural that Sheen coughed up $100,000 to help the embattled actress fight off the IRS.

The actor reportedly sent the fat check to Lohan’s business manager to help deal with the $233,904 in taxes she owes, dating back to 2009, according to TMZ. (He’s a smart one, that Charlie Sheen, for not sending it directly to the actress. Or her mother. Or father.)

According to the site, the two became fast friends during the filming of “Scary Movie 5″ in September, because they have a lot in common, like being delusional and sharing histories of drug abuse.

Lohan apparently told the veteran nut job about her financial problems, and he offered to help her out then and there. She refused, because maybe she figured it’s not a good idea to accept large sums of money from (former?) cocaine addicts.

But Sheen must have some generosity flowing through his tiger-blood veins, because the big check showed up at her manager’s office last week, and Lohan “immediately” put the money towards her outstanding taxes.

Hopefully, the actress won’t have to worry about the IRS anymore, now that she stars in Lifetime movies. If she gets in financial trouble down the road, she can always pawn her future Academy Award.
