Elizabeth Olsen has a big birthday coming up next week!

The super-cute actress turns 25 on Feb. 16. So what type of celebrations does Olsen have in store?

"My friends and my boyfriend [Boyd Holbrook] are throwing me a painting party!" she told us exclusively last night at the premiere of her new film In Secret. "We're painting."

Olsen laughed of her painting skills, "I'm terrible. That's why it sounds like fun."

While Olsen already has her birthday plans set up, she and Holbrook don't yet have any plans for Valentine's Day next week. "No idea yet," she said, adding, "Maybe museums or something."

Meanwhile, Olsen is gearing up for her role as the Scarlet Witch in the upcoming Avenger sequel. "[I'm] very excited," she gushed. "We're doing prep work now. It's a lot of fun and I think it's going to be really exciting for the fans because it's going to be something they are not expecting. That's why I'm excited."

As for her film In Secret, Olsen and Oscar Isaac play secret lovers in the 1860's Paris. The costar had to film lots of sexy scenes together.

"It's incredibly awkward," Olsen said. "But you have to feel safe and you have to feel respected and you just provide that for each other. You create a safe environment. In those situations you're just thinking about what's the choreography her? It's like a dance in a way. You get it done."

And Olsen admits she didn't mind wearing bulky period clothing during filming. "The corsets are kind of fun," she gushed. "The most uncomfortable thing is figuring out how to sit in between scenes. Jessica [Lange] and I would just prop up our legs on a table and just be like this huge hoop scoop reclined. It's not that uncomfortable."
