Kevin Hart Leads Top Actors Social Media Ranking for the First TIme

Canadians Shay Mitchell and Finn Wolfhard make the list which ranks the most popular actors based on data from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus.

Though he’s led The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Comedians chart since its June 2017 inception, Kevin Hart has now reached the peak of Top Actors for the first time, rising to No. 1 on the ranking dated Feb. 14.

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 Feb. 6.

Hart, who had previously ranked at No. 2 for multiple weeks (including the previous Feb. 7-dated tally), leads Will Smith, who climbs to a new peak of No. 2, followed by Dwayne Johnson, who falls 1-3.

Zendaya and Finn Wolfhard make major gains, leaping back into the top 10 at Nos. 4 and 5, respectively, while Cara Delevingne and Shay Mitchell also re-enter the top 10 (Nos. 16 and 24) in a volatile week in which no actor in the top 10 remained in the same position from the previous week.

See the top 10 below (and for the full 25-position ranking, pick up the THR issue dated Feb. 14), and for more charts on The Hollywood Reporter, check out the Top Comedians and Top TV Personalities charts.
