Many times in the world of celebrity news, you hear things that you're convinced can't be true, only to be proven wrong later. This latest rumor has all the dubious signs of being just that — a lark — but the 10-year-old inside me is hoping I'm wrong. 


So here we go: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are building an eco-friendly theme park for their children. But wait! Not only does it include "a massive pool, slides, tunnels, boat rides, a pirate island with a castle, a go-kart track and even an old-fashioned carousel" — but it's ALL UNDERGROUND. 


Apparently, the need for this addition to the family's estate in France arose after a trip to Legoland in the U.K. last September had to be cut short amid concerns about security.


A source told The Sun: "Brad and Ange felt really bad having to drag the kids home early when they were at Legoland last year. But if their bodyguards said there were too many people then they had no choice."


"Their eldest son Maddox asked if they could build something similar at the house in France. They were already getting a new pool so they decided it was a great idea."


And yes, apparently this theme park will have green elements. "It will be powered by sunlight, using panels in the roof and the water will be recycled," the site reports. 


Like I said before, considering the source, this one doesn't seem too realistic. On the other hand, if it is true, Brad and Angelina just might be the coolest parents in the world.
