False. Draw two tangent circles.
If one is not inside the other, then there is a tangent line that passes between the circles, touching each at the point of tangency.
There are also two lines that lie outside the circles, but lean up against both of them. Those are also common tangents.
If one circle is inside the other, then there is just a single common tangent.
