The British actress starred as Irene Adler in the BBC drama, which included a lengthy naked scene opposite Benedict Cumberbatch.
She joked that she has become the new Kate Winslet since appearing nude in the episode.
"I take my clothes off for a minute and a half and everyone suddenly goes, 'Oh great, she's an actress who will take her clothes off'," she told Radio Times.
"'We can't get Kate Winslet. Let's see if Lara Pulver will do a swinger movie.'"
The BBC was criticised for airing the episode in question before the 9pm watershed on New Year's Day.
However, the episode also topped the BBC iPlayer chart for the first four months of 2012.
Lara Pulver recently dismissed claims linking her with Doctor Who.
