We use spectral invariants in Lagrangian Floer theory in order to show that there exist isometric embeddings of normed linear spaces (finite or infinite-dimensional, depending on the case) into the space of Hamiltonian deformations of certain weakly exact Lagrangian submanifolds in tame symplectic manifolds. In addition to providing a new class of examples in which the Lagrangian Hofer metric can be computed explicitly, we refine and generalize some known results about it.
