Is Tobey Maguire the least followed Hollywood celebrity on Twitter?

If the number of social media fans is any indication of how much draw an actor can bring nowadays, then Tobey Maguire needs to work on his internet popularity. The star of the first 3 Spiderman movies - a series of films that have grossed a total of more than $2 BILLION - only has 5,755 twitter followers.

Here is a screenshot dated May 30, 2012.

This is a very small number for a celebrity. Compare that to @Lady Gaga, who as of today, has 24,947,992 followers. Or @Chris Evans, star of Captain America, who has 112,374 as of today. And he just joined Twitter less than a week ago. Tobey Maguire, on the other hand, has been on the social networking site since March 2012. In his first tweet, he asked:

Apparently, if you're Tobey Maguire... not that many.

On a related not, Mr. Maguire stars alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in The Great Gatsby, which is set to open on December 25, 2012. Let's hope this movie will put the momentum back in his career (and get him more followers!). Because he is a very talented actor, IMO. Here is the trailer for The Great Gatsby. It looks pretty awesome.

If you enjoyed the trailer and you like Tobey Maguire, go follow him on twitter @TobeyMaguire.
