Dwayne Johnson becomes the first person to lead The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart at No. 1 for 10 weeks, reigning for the third week in a row on the ranking dated Sept. 13. (The chart launched 15 weeks ago, with the list dated June 7.)

The Top Actors chart is a ranking of the most popular actors on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus, with global data provided by social media analytics company MVPindex. The chart’s methodology blends social engagement on the platforms along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers. The latest tracking week ended Sept. 5.

Kevin Hart, who reigns over on the Top Comedians chart, rises 4-2 behind Johnson, while Zendaya, Vanessa Hudgens and Shay Mitchell round out the top five.
