Hamsher has had breast cancer three times: 1993, 2004, and 2006. She insisted on returning to Washington, D.C., two weeks after her third surgery to blog the remainder of the Scooter Libby trial. Her treatment has been at St. John’s Health Center in Santa Monica, California.

At USC, Hamsher became friends with Don Murphy, forming a production company, Jane and Don Productions, Inc. For $10,000, they secured an option on the original screenplay for the 1994 satirical crime film Natural Born Killers, written by a then-unknown Quentin Tarantino. However, “the film, directed by Oliver Stone, departed significantly from Tarantino’s original screenplay, so much so that Tarantino removed his name from the screenplay credits.” The film starred Woody Harrelson, Juliette Lewis, Tom Sizemore, Rodney Dangerfield, Robert Downey, Jr., and Tommy Lee Jones. It was co-produced with Thom Mount and Arnon Milchan, and its credited screenwriters included Stone, Dave Veloz, and Richard Rutowski. In addition to co-producing the film, Hamsher also had an uncredited cameo in it as a female demon.

In September 1997, Hamsher published the controversial memoir Killer Instinct recounting her experiences as a producer of Natural Born Killers. The L.A. Times said the book is “chock-full of outrageous firsthand tales.” As Entertainment Weekly put it, “Stone is painted as a hard-partying womanizer who pits his underlings against each other and plays mind games….Tarantino gets off less easily. Hamsher charges that he betrayed her and Murphy by going behind their backs to keep them from making Natural Born Killers. She also calls Tarantino a ‘one-trick pony,’ a wildly overrated director.” Hamsher included a full-page reproduction of a suggestive note Tarantino allegedly sent her at the Venice Film Festival. On his website, Murphy says that when Tarantino’s former manager, Cathryn Jaymes, “came back with her notes [on the manuscript] my then partner lost it on her, I guess because she didn’t want to make changes. There are many reasons why our partnership ended soon after that book, but her treatment of Cathryn was a major factor.” Killer Instinct reached number two on the L.A. Times bestseller list. Hamsher was later sued by an attorney who is described in the book as a “creepazoid attorney,” “the Kmart Johnnie Cochran” and “a loser wannabe lawyer.” The Appeals Court affirmed that colorful language which does not impugn professional abilities is protected by the First Amendment.”
