Is all that tiger blood being pumped by a heart of gold?
Charlie Sheen made what he might call a "winning" move Sunday when he donated $75,000 to help a Hermosa Beach police officer's 10-year-old daughter battle a form of childhood cancer.
He wrote a check after hearing from Hermosa Beach police Officer Everitt Faulk that his daughter Jasmine was suffering from a form of pediatric cancer called alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma, according to the Facebook page of the Hermosa Beach Police Officer's Association, which set up a fund to help the girl's family pay for her treatment.
Sheen's stunt double, Eddie Braun, also made a donation, kicking in $25,000 to help Jasmine fight the disease, a malignancy that affects muscle tissue attached to bones, according to the HBPOA Facebook page.
The donation comes on the heels of reports that Sheen loaned $100,000 to Lindsay Lohan to help the embattled actress pay off an IRS tax debt.
Earlier this year, Sheen pledged to donate at least $1 million of his profits from the television series "Anger Management" to the United Service Organizations Inc., better known as the USO, to help injured U.S. Armed Forces members.
Sheen lost his role in the hit CBS series "Two and a Half Men" last year after clashing with show co-creator Chuck Lorre. He was said to be television's highest paid actor at the time, making a reported $1.8 million to $2 million per episode.
In rants issued before and after his firing by Warner Bros., Sheen referred to himself as a "warlock," said he had "Adonis DNA," and "tiger blood" running through his veins. He repeatedly asserted he was "winning," even as his lucrative gig was unraveling.
He sued Warner Bros. and Lorre for $100 million, alleging wrongful termination, but eventually reached a confidential settlement that, according to published reports, paid him $25 million. He has since been replaced on "Two and a Half Men" by Ashton Kutcher.
