(LOS ANGELES) — While a recent report said Charlie Sheen took pity on his Scary Movie 5 cameo co-star Lindsay Lohan and sent her a hundred grand to cut in half her $200,000 debt to Uncle Sam, TMZ reports Sheen helped out other charity cases as well with his salary for the spoof.
The gossip site says the former Warlock donated the remainder of his $250,000 paycheck to three charities chosen by the movie’s director and producers.
Earlier this year, Sheen announced he’d given one of his profit points for his new show Anger Management to the USO’s Operation Enduring Care Campaign for wounded veterans; the donation was worth at least a million bucks, but that amount will grow because Anger Management was subsequently picked up by FX for 90 additional episodes.
