Hollywood trainwreck and star of the new show Anger Management, actor Charlie Sheen has allegedly pledged one million US dollars to a U.S military support organisation.
It has been reported that if his new show is a success, his donations will only go higher. The organisation to which Sheen donated to is a program dedicated to raising money to help wounded and ill soldiers and their families.
According to Sheen’s spokeswoman, at least one percent of the profits made on the new comedy series will go to the USO’s Operation Enduring Care, in order to help provide relief to the ill and wounded soldiers. One percent may not seem like much, not in the world of Charlie Sheen anyway.
In 2011, it was reported that Charlie Sheen had a net worth of over 75 million US dollars.
There have also been reports of Sheen receiving payouts of millions of dollars (up to 100 apparently) for his ending work with Two and a Half Men.
While working on the show, Charlie was earning approximately 1.25 million US dollars per episode.
Despite no longer hailing in the massive Two and a Half men pay check, recent news and the overwhelming publicity of his new show looks to be bringing in a new leaf for the previously rehabbed and mocked Sheen.
Could this seemingly new path in his life bring him back to the Hollywood limelight, for the right reasons? Or will an influx of money just lead to another rehab stunt.
