Priyanka Chopra keeps her hold on No. 1 of The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Actors chart (dated Dec. 26) for the third week in a row after earning the top six Instagram posts by an actor in the Dec. 12-18 tracking week.

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 Dec. 18.

Chopra leads Kevin Hart, Will Smith and George Takei in the list’s top four, meaning the chart’s highest reaches remain intact from the Dec. 19-dated ranking. Meanwhile, Eugenio Derbez is the lone entry into the top five, moving 16-5.
