A week after ranking on The Hollywood Reporter’s inaugural Top Actors chart at No. 2, Priyanka Chopra replaces Baywatch co-star Dwayne Johnson atop the newest tally.

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 June 6.

Chopra rises 2-1 on the chart, gaining in multiple metrics, including 98 percent in Twitter mentions in the tracking week. Johnson and fellow Baywatch star Zac Efron rank at Nos. 2 and 9, respectively.
