Priyanka Chopra retains her hold on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart, leading the Jan. 9-dated list to snag her fifth week in a row atop the ranking.

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 Jan. 1.

Chopra rules the tally ahead of Kevin Hart, who moves 3-2, and Ricky Gervais (8-5).

The newly engaged Debby Ryan comes in at No. 4, while Jim Carrey returns to the list’s top 10 at No. 8.

See the top 10 below (and for the full 25-position list, pick up the THR issue dated Jan. 9), and for more charts on The Hollywood Reporter, check out the Top Comedians and Top TV Personalities charts.
