Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Vin Diesel lead The Hollywood Reporter's latest Top Actors chart, ranking at Nos. 1, 2and 3 on the list dated Oct. 11.

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 Oct. 3.

Johnson leads for a 13th week (and third in a row) after posting one of the most-engaged-with photos of the week on Instagram by an actor, according to MVPindex, while Hart returns to his peak of No. 2, which he previously held on the ranking dated Sept. 13 (for more on the reasons behind his gain, see the Top Comedians recap).

Plus, Bella Thorne breaks into the top 10 for the first time after previously rising as high as No. 13 (Aug. 9).

    No. 5: Delevingne darts 16-5 on the latest chart with the third-most-engaged-with post on social media by an actor in the tracking week: an Instagram post showing off the t-shirt she designed for the Lady Garden Campaign, meant to promote screening for and awareness of gynecological cancers, in England.

    It's a meager rise for Johnson in terms of most social media metrics this week, as he primarily gains on Twitter, where he received a 404 percent boost in likes and a 678 percent gain in retweets (up to 486,000 and 114,000, respectively). One widely shared post was a preview of his shoot for EBONY's Power 100 cover, which was also posted to Instagram and was the second-most-engaged-with post by an actor in the tracking week, gathering 1.7 million likes.
