Clooney confirmed to Esquire which of his alleged romances were real and which weren't. People has a list, too. Here are some of the women associated with the actor.

Kelly Preston - Clooney dated the actress in the late 1980s. He gave her a pet pig, Max, that Clooney kept after they split up. Preston was later engaged to Charlie Sheen (who shot her, though he denies it), and is now married to John Travolta.

Talia Balsam - The only woman to marry Clooney. The couple was married from 1989-1993. She married John Slattery, who plays Roger Sterling on "Mad Men," in 1998. Balsam plays his ex-wife on the show. She's the daughter of actor Martin Balsam. Clooney told Vanity Fair, "I just don't feel like I gave Talia a fair shot."

Denise Crosby - That's right! Clooney told Esquire he dated Security Chief Tasha Yar.

Celine Balitran - The actor met the French Balitran while shooting "The Peacemaker" in Paris. He told Esquire that she left him because he prefers being single.

Brooke Langton - The actress may be best known for her role in the 2000 film "The Replacements" and her recurring role on "Friday Night Lights."

Traylor Howard - You know who she is. She co-starred on "Two Guys and a Girl," which was the show Ryan Reynolds was on before he became all beefy, and "Monk."

Lisa Snowdon - This British model hosted "Britain's Next Top Model." She currently co-hosts the radio show "Capital Breakfast."

Sarah Larson - Clooney dated the "Fear Factor" contestant for about a year. Long enough for them to both get injured in a motorcycle accident, anyway. They broke up in May 2008.
