Dwayne Johnson leads The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart for a fourth week in a row (and fifth overall), while Ansel Elgort, Vin Diesel and Lucy Hale break back into the top 10 on the chart dated July 26.

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 July 18.

In all, two performers reach new peaks on the Top Actors tally: Spider-Man: Homecoming's Tom Holland (No. 3) and Baby Driver's Elgort (No. 5), in addition to Johnson’s continued reign atop the chart.

    Elgort leaps 496 percent in Twitter likes, according to MVPindex, after he spent a fair amount of time retweeting Twitter users voting for him in the upcoming Teen Choice Awards in between a visit to Malaysia and even teasing a new song, “Save Me,” in one of his videos. He even took time to thank EDM producer Alesso, who congratulated Elgort on his Baby Driver success.

    On Instagram, Wonder Woman's Gadot reposted a THR headline that read, “Box Office: ‘Wonder Woman’ Holding Better Than Any Superhero Movie in 15 Years.” That was a morale boost for Gadot, who wrote in the caption, “Thanks to ALL of you for making #WonderWoman a success.” A similar message was posted to Twitter. In jumping 7-4 on the Top Actors chart, Gadot gains 10 percent in all social media engagement metrics, including 23 percent in Instagram favorites.

    Someone apparently forgot to remove one of Holland’s Spider-Man costumes from his private plane, so Holland and his crew (including brother Harry) decided to dress up in the costume to see if it’d fit, posting a video on Instagram of the attempt. He also thanked his followers on Instagram for breaking the 3 million mark. The posts help Holland jump 158 percent in Instagram favorites, garnering 4.3 million in all.
