Emma Roberts and Evan Peters (Tyler Shields)


Just when you thought celebrities couldn't be more magical, Emma Roberts goes flying through the air.

The "We're the Millers" star went completely airborne for a new photo shoot by edgy photographer Tyler Shields.

In one pic, the 22-year-old niece of Julia Roberts is being tossed into the ether toward her boyfriend, "American Horror Story" star Evan Peters.

"I said, 'All right, we are going to throw Emma to you [Evan], and you're going to catch her,'" Shields explains to omg!. "You know, they are in a relationship, so I'm sitting there with the camera and I'm thinking to myself, 'OK, if he doesn't catch her there is hell to pay for that! He will never live that down their entire relationship.'"

"I have never seen people so dedicated," he continues.

In another beautiful photo, Roberts appears to be doing a midair, "Matrix"-like dance with Shields's girlfriend, Francesca Eastwood.

"That was the first take, and then we did it again and [Emma and Francesca] collided and smashed into each other in the air," says Shields, but there was no harm done. "They were unscathed. They are tough. So tough. It was really impressive."

From then on out, Shields decided they would only do only one take per shot.

The collection of images Shields calls "Suspense" will be on display at the Guy Hepner Gallery in Los Angeles starting April 28. The artist has been working on the series for about a year, but admits that getting Roberts and Eastwood in on the action was actually their idea, despite knowing it could be dangerous.

"They were like, 'No, no, we are doing this,'" Shields recalls. "I said, 'You guys, it takes a lot of physical ability to do this.' For the first time ever, I was discouraging someone from doing something!"

It clearly all paid off.

"These are Emma and Francesca's favorite photos they have ever been in or seen," Shields says about the women's final reaction. "Emma had a great line -- she told me this series would be a game-changer for [her] career, and it would put [her] on a whole new level."

The girl can pun while flying!

"Francesca has seen me build the whole series and she thinks its my best work yet," continues the famed photographer.

This isn't the first time Roberts has posed for Shields. Last summer, he shot her chomping on $100,000 cash.

Roberts is currently shooting "Delirium," a Fox pilot based on Lauren Oliver's popular dystopian book series. She'll next be seen on the big screen opposite Liam Hemsworth and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in "Empire State."
