Lipids that form bilayers are amphipathic; they have a polar headgroup and nonpolar acyl chains. Triacylglycerols lack a polar headgroup, so they cannot orient themselves to form a bilayer (To form a bilayer, the non-polar acyl chains of triglycerides would have to be buried in the interior, and the glycerol moiety would have to be at the surface in contact with the water.)
