'Dumb & Dumber' star Jeff Daniels has resisted the urge to learn how to fly a plane because he doesn't think stars like John Travolta and Tom Cruise should be pilots.

The actor travels around America in his beloved recreational vehicle (RV) and he rents property when he needs to be in one place for a few months.

Refusing to settle down in his native Michigan and fly back and forth on private jets, Daniels insists he would rather save his money and resist the temptation to become his own pilot.

He says, "You get a private jet and then you want to fly it... and I've never been able to get past the fact that when I'm flying, even when I'm flying commercial... I look and I see another plane and if (John) Travolta's flying that plane... (He's an) absolutely wonderful guy, a terrific actor, but I don't want him up in the sky when I am."
